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.

Paul Klee Buildings

Second grade created these colorful abstracts of buildings using construction paper crayons. After looking at several works by Paul Klee and learning a bit about his life, students used rulers and pencils to draw vertical lines that would become the buildings. They used the width of the ruler, which is about one inch. Negative space was also discussed and the girls were encouraged to make the tops of the buildings end at different points, as well as adding triangles in a few areas. Each "tower" was then divided up into squares and then some squares were filled with "x's" or straight division lines. The whole drawing was outlined in black crayon and then each space was filled with construction paper crayons.
