4th Grade Aboriginal Paintings

4th Graders just finished their Aboriginal dot paintings and they turned out pretty good. We listened to some calming music and some students kept telling me how relaxing it was to paint calmly and carefully. I even sat down next to one of my groups, tried it for myself, and they were right. So peaceful.

Rodeo Art

The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is just around the corner and Pomeroy students have finally finished their artwork for the Rodeo contest. We have many students that were chosen as finalists for Pasadena ISD's district show and their work looks stunning. From volunteering their time before school to trying new techniques, their dedication shows in their drawings. Their artwork is now displayed at the administration building for the next few weeks and will soon be displayed in the halls of Pomeroy, for all to admire. Keep an eye out soon for their work in the hallways. They're truly marvelous!

Here are a few of our entries:

Vincent Van Gogh's "Sunflowers"

Vincent Van Gogh is known for a series of paintings titled “Sunflowers”. Students replicated his painting using oil pastels and crayons. They learned about organic and geometric shapes found in nature and in a man-made environment. They were urged to keep their colors lively and bright, which meant avoiding browns and blacks.

Kindergarten Pumpkin Sunsets

Nature sometimes gives us amazing views, vibrant colors, and stimulating illusions. Sunsets and sunrises are one of nature’s many colorful canvases. The warm glowing colors in the sky can easily be reproduced on paper.

Our Kindergarten students learned about sunrises and sunsets and the colors they make in the sky. They also learned about what happens to objects as they are introduced to the sunlight. Crayons were used to draw and color the pumpkins, and watercolors were used to paint the skies. The crayon repels the watercolors and allows for the crayons to show through the watercolors.
