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.

Watercolor Landscapes with Patterns

Fourth grade had great success with this landscape project. First the class looked at a few examples of landscapes, and we discussed how the parts closest to the viewer seemed to overlap parts farther away. The girls were asked to interpret each component of their landscape however they liked, but they were required to follow the order I gave them. The order given to them was: flowers, water, hills, mountains, sun. Patterns and details were added throughout the drawing, just to make the viewer's eye move around the artwork. Sharpies were used to draw over the pencil drawing, and watercolor was laid over the final drawing.
