We are finishing up some great projects in our art room! Fourth graders have been revisiting a favorite artist, Faith Ringgold – and have created these beautiful self-portraits. My favorite part of this project is reading what they wrote about themselves below their portraits – such a fun way for me to get to know them all a little bit better! (click on the images to see what they wrote!)
First graders have completed a little pattern project – Beetle Bop Bugs. This project gave them a chance to show Mrs. Brouwer their direction following and cutting skills…not to mention getting to use those fancy paper punches! First graders learned that the paper punch can be a little tricky to use!
Second grade artists have been looking at the sunflowers painted by Vincent Van Gogh as they created their own beautiful sunflowers.
We love these new Crayola crayons…so many beautiful colors all rolled in to one fancy twistee crayon.
Parents….the 1st grade Beetle Bop project and the 2nd grade Sunflowers are in Georgetown’s ARTSONIA on-line art gallery – visit the gallery HERE.
A few more selections for the April HPS District Art Show, squeaking under the wire! Congratulations, artists!

Second grade artists have been looking at the work of Vincent Van Gogh and his sunflower paintings. They are finishing up these fun sunflowers – with a twist! Zebra print stems and bright neon colors really jazz up these springy flowers.

My second grade artists created these beautiful sunflowers this week. We looked at Van Gogh’s Vase of Sunflowers and focused on a single sunflower, using careful shading in oil pastel to create our work of art.

We learned about shading and value last fall with our pumpkin project – my second graders remembered this and did a beautiful job shading the sunflower petals.
Finishing touch – I hot-glued seeds in the centers.
