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.

Monet's Waterlily Collage

First grade created these collages inspired by Monet's waterlily paintings. First we observed several of Monet's artworks and discussed how he painted outside. We discussed the importance of light and how Monet would paint the same subject several times at different times to see how the sunlight affected the colors of his subjects. The girls looked closely at his painting style and the colors he used to make the water. They used watercolor to make their own water and blended several cool colors to create a dimensional background. After the water was dry, they made lily pads out of construction paper and used tissue to make the lilies.
