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.

Block Towers

The Kindergarteners loved this project because it had so many different componets. First we discussed 3-d shapes. I brought in a huge box of wooden blocks and scrap wood for them to dig through. They chose blocks to build a tower with, then did their best to draw the shapes. After they completed their drawing, they covered the lines in crayon and painted using watercolor.


  1. I love this idea! So cool that they got to build first and then draw what they had built themselves. Very cool!

  2. Thanks Phyl! It's also so cool to see how the blocks are interpreted. They always build towers that are way more complex than what they are capable of drawing, but that's what makes the results are so interesting.
