Well, it seems that Friday updates are going to start turning into Monday updates if we keep having all these snow days!! I would love to share what we have been doing this week, but it wouldn't be the same without pictures! So stay tuned to see the artwork from this week show up on Monday! (or whenever I can get back to school!)
So what did I do on this snow day? Well, my husband and I ventured out after lunch today and the roads seemed pretty clear. We met my sister and two nieces at the Huntington Mall for some good deals! I saw several students there shopping too!! Hope you guys found something good! I think we will enjoy some Mexican food here in a bit, then come home to relax with Netflix or Mario Kart Wii! Two of our favorite snow day activities! I hope everyone had a happy and safe snow day! See you Monday!
During Fashion Design week, 6th grade art students took on the job of designing a new and exciting pattern! We learned that fashion design is not intended for clothes only. We created beautiful patterns for many items such as wallpaper, bedspreads, and lawn chairs! The possibilities are endless!
Check out the nicely planned designs!
As for this week... let's hope the snow stays away for now! I would really love for every class to have art this week! Thanks for visiting!
Just a note to let you know that our art class is also on Twitter!

I update on Twitter almost daily, and sometimes give you sneak-peeks at what we're doing in art class! I also "tweet" about new blog posts so you never miss an update of the week!

And yet another snow day has delayed the blogging of GCS Art Students! Thankfully, we are back on track, and you are going to love what we created last week!!
In case you haven't noticed, January is all about occupations in the art world! First we talked about illustrators, then we learned about inventors, and last week we learned about fashion design. Fashion design is not limited to run-ways, crazy outfits, and deathly high heels!! We discovered that "fashion" is all around us, and that somebody out there designed it!
Kindergarten art students got a chance to design their very own shirt or dress. We reviewed symmetry and patterns and colors. We carefully planned out the design with our pencil, colored it with crayons, then presented each one to the class. Then we voted (by applause) on our favorite patterns that we would love to wear some day! What do you think of these future fashion designers?

Ladies and Gentlemen, prepare to be astounded!!
Never before seen invention sketches by 4th and 5th grade art students have been found in the deep crevices of the art room!
Alright, I know I promised to share my New Year's Resolution Illustration so here you go!
Second Grade did not illustrate last week, because we were too busy celebrating our win in the No "W" Contest!! We narrowed down our theme to 2 choices- popcorn or playdough. The final choice? Both!
It's not really a party without popcorn, so we decided we could have a Popcorn AND a Playdough Party! Each art student spent the whole art hour molding, creating, bending, shaping, and playing with Playdough.
After trying to upload these pictures for the last few days, I think it will finally work with me! Sorry for the delay, but the beautiful artwork is well worth the wait!!

Today Kindergarten art students learned a new word! Resolution. We also learned that drawing pictures of "goals" is different than drawing pictures of "girls!" :) They are too funny! We also learned about illustrators and their job of telling a story with pictures. We all thought about some goals and chose one to illustrate. There were some really touching and sweet goals that they came up with! Take a look at these beautiful works of art!
