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.

Georgia O'Keeffe

Here's another idea for Georgia O'Keeffe flowers. For this project, I used oil pastels and took advantage of the girls having a background in value study (we first did the abstract value study lesson found on this blog). I have a lot of flower pictures from old calendars. I allowed the girls to choose which flower they wanted, or they could print one from home. They first cropped the image by making a paper frame and focusing it on one area of the flower. After drawing the flower on paper with a pencil,they began blending and mixing oil pastels to fill in the color. They turned out beautifully as you can see.
