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.

Mixed Media Collage

Multi-Media Collage

Third grade worked through this project over several class times. This is a multiple step project that covers many techniques. The background in simply tempera paint applied thickly then scraped with a texture scraper. The girls drew a tree on a separate piece of paper and when they were happy with it, they cut it out and traced it onto brown construction paper. On another paper, they used a wet-on wet technique to fill it with colors, considering color blending while they worked. The students also experimented with salt in some areas. After the watercolor was dry, they cut out the leaf shapes and glued the collage together.
