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.

Textured Ice Cream

First grade loved making these texture collages inspired by Brown Bear author Eric Carle. We first looked at several Eric Carle books and how his illustrations were made. I set up different painting stations with tempera paint, scraping tools and other texturing tools. The girls were give paper to paint and scrape and create textures on. They then used a template shaped like a scoop of ice cream to make "scoop" shapes on the dried textures. After cutting out 3-4 ice cream scoops. they made one of their texture papers into a cone shape. The girls then glued the ice cream cones together and created a patterned border around the edge.
