Blue Dog Meets Just Write

We’re adding a new twist to Georgetown’s 2012 Just Write Week – art AND writing!  Just Write is a huge celebration of our year long work in writing, with student and staff stories covering every bit of space in our hallways and classrooms.  This year, we’re featuring artwork and poems in our multi-purpose room the week of May 14-18.

Third grade artists created a piece of artwork and then wrote awesome poems about their art pieces.  Our art and writing inspiration is Louisiana artist George Rodrigue and his famous “Blue Dog” series.

We read Rodrigue’s fun book, “Why Is Blue Dog Blue”, which is filled with great puns and plays on words about color.

Students drew and colored their own “Blue Dogs” in art with Mrs. Brouwer and wrote poems about their artwork in their classrooms.

Here’s a sample of what we created – please stop by the multi-purpose room (cafeteria) May 14-18 to see our Blue Dog Art And Poetry Show!
