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.

Warhol Portraits

Third graders made these colorful Warhol-inspired portraits after looking at several works by the artist. First they drew a self-portrait while looking into a mirror. The paper they used is a small (4x5) piece of printer paper. After they completed a portrait they liked, They were given four sheets of drawing paper. they colored the back of the original drawing with graphite, placed the drawing on top of the drawing paper (graphite side down) and traced over their drawings. The image was transferred to each piece of drawing paper. They outlined the four drawings with Sharpie and erased any stray pencil marks. Then they completed the images by painting them with water color. The end results are fantastic!
