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.

Nighttime with Charles Birchfield

In Pre-Kindergarten, we talked about the atmosphere and how to make an artwork look like a certain time of day. How do we make our picture look like it is showing night time? We looked at a painting by Charles Birchfield called Rainy Night in Buffalo New York and discussed what Birchfield did to make his painting look like night time. The girls pointed out the street lights, the lights in the windows, the dark sky, the head lights on the cars and the dark colors. They then used the information to make their own night time picture. We used construction paper crayons on dark paper to make the pictures.
