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.

Frank Stella Abstract Art



Second graders looked at many artworks by artist Frank Stella before creating these 3-dimentional patterned artworks. First they drew free-form lines on paper being careful to keep many open spaces and filling the paper. Each space created by the overlapping of lines was filled with a pattern. After all the spaces were filled, the students cut into the design, staying on the original lines (from the free-form lines). Being careful not to cut completely through the design, they made several cuts. When the cutting is complete, staple the design down to a black piece of paper, bunching up the design as you go.
