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.

Little Yellow Leaf Collage

Before we began this project, I read the sweet story called "Little Yellow Leaf"  by Carin Berger. It's a story of a leaf that was afraid to fall from the tree. A red leaf was also afraid, so they decided to fall together. The kids loved it and we were able to talk about friendship and fears.

I like to teach the pre-k students about the shape of trees, so that they don't make what I call "cloud-top trees". We looked at pictures of trees and at real trees outside and discussed the trunk, branches and limbs. They then painted the tree part using brown tempera paint. After the painting was dry, they cut out one red and one yellow leaf and glued them to the branches.
