Third grade learned about James Audubon and the repousse' technique before making these metal artworks. Each girl had a reference and was required to make a realistic bird. They worked from the back of the metal, then added details and textures from the front. They were able to use texture plates and other tools to create the details. Lastly, they colored the silver side of the metal with Sharpie. They looked beautiful all together on the wall, especially when they caught the light.
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.

Second graders loved making these colorful Mondrian inspired artworks. After looking at many examples of Piet Mondrian's work, the girls made spaces by overlapping black strips of construction paper. They then used watercolor crayons to fill in primary colors.
