Art room ideas and activities to try in your elementary classroom.
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.

Fall Trees, Fall Leaves
Fall Trees by Kindergarten
For this project the girls learned about warm colors, and used a variety of paints. We discussed what I call "cotton ball" trees and how trees really consist of limbs, branches and a more random shape for the leaves. We went outside and observed the anatomy of a tree and the girls pointed out their findings. For this project the students used tempera cakes for the tree trunk, water color for the background and finger paints for the leaves.
