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.

Abstract Sculptures

Abstract Sculptures

Fourth grade was given a huge box of wood pieces and beads after looking at a PowerPoint of various abstract sculptures (works by Richard Serra, Tony Smith, Henry Moore, Rachel Beach, Lynn Chadwick). I ordered one of those miscellaneous boxes of scrap wood from an art supply catalog, then added Popsicle sticks and coffee stirrers. We discussed how each viewpoint needed to be interesting and the difference between a "sculpture in the round" and a relief sculpture. Balance and color were also discussed.
