Art from the Heart – Display My Art!

Students publish art with this fun FUNdraiser at Don Gill Elementary School

 

by Sarah Wagaman - November 9, 2016

Don Gill Elementary’s biennial fundraiser for grades K-4 is in motion and the students’ work is looking amazing!

Display My Art is a fun opportunity for students to get his/her artwork published on numerous products such as t-shirts, Christmas ornaments, pillow cases, coffee mugs, water bottles, and so much more! There is no obligation for students to purchase anything and they will receive a complimentary magnet with their artwork just for submitting. The process is involved and commences by having students initiate artwork on the designated paper shipped by the company. After sketching and color implementation all work is organized by class, grade, then school and shipped to the company. They in turn send us personalized order forms for parents to peruse with student magnets. The company is easy to work with and flexible. They offer on-line ordering and free shipping to the student’s home! They make great Christmas gifts for friends/family as they are personalized and made with a creative and uninhibited spirit! And as the students create, enjoying seeing their artwork published, they are also learning the art concepts/curriculum. All orders are due no later than November 16th and will be in prior to Christmas break – yay!

Behind the scenes:
Kindergarten utilized primary colors with their shapes to simulate artist Piet Mondrian.

1st Grade read The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein and created their own giving tree in a realistic manner by using letters “Yy and Vv”.

2nd Grade illustrated owls as a nocturnal creature through basic shapes (oval, circle, and triangle) then implemented the neutral color group with colored pencils. Foreground and background were also a consideration.

3rd Grade studied Still Life compositions as we looked directly at apples – tis the season. As artists often use odd numbers in their work they also demonstrate overlap, shadows, and size variation for depth.

4th Grade examined artist Vincent Van Gogh’s sunflowers as well as some life events that influenced his art work. There are countless ways to portray a sunflower. Not to mention baking the seeds from the life examples and sharing in art class – yum!
