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.

Winter Wonderland

In an effort to help my little ones understand how important details are to artworks, we looked at artworks that had wintry scenes in them such as Peter Brugel's "The Hunters in the Snow". We had a discussion about all the picture clues-- that tell us as the viewer--what the subject of the painting is. The girls pointed out the bare trees, the heavy coats, the ice skating, snow on rooftops, the fire, etc.

I gave the students light grey construction paper and construction paper crayons. They were told to draw a wintry scene that had many clues about the subject.
