Welcome to Super Happy Art Class!

I hope you enjoy looking at the wonderful artwork from Duchesne Academy Lower School. Lower School consists of girls, grades pre-k through fourth. Unfortunately I have not kept record of all the successful projects, but here is a good sampling. Check out the artwork by grade level, but realize that each activity can be used for multi-grades.

silk hoops, nature drawings, color theory

I saw this silk hoop kit in a catalogue and decided to try it out. First we went outside and drew trees around the school. The girls were given a silk hoop which they placed on top of their tree drawings, and moved it around until they saw an image they liked. They traced the image lightly onto the hoop with pencil. The kit comes with a resist that they used to outline their drawings, then they used the dye to paint them. This was a good color theory activity because the dye would blend with the color next to it. If they put two complimentary colors next to each other, they might not like what they saw.
