- Tempera cakes instead of tempera paint--If you don't need super messy wet paint, why use it? You may like to brightness of the colors, or the mixing ability but you can get this and more with tempera cakes. Plus, you don't have the mess with tempera cakes. I bought Prang which are wonderful! They are easy to use, easy to mix, and come in an easily stackable container with a lid. I used them for the Jim Dine hearts and the Van Gogh landscapes. They are a bit expensive, but last forever and the quality is fantastic!
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.
