Hundertwasser inspired

Hundertwasser inspired second graders created these motifs based on nature. The first step was to create painted paper with found objects (so fun!) then cut up and collage. I encourage them to do an "art paste sandwich" (art paste, paper, art paste) which helps the paper lay flat and mixes the tempera painted paper as you work. I found these fun one inch punches at Michael's a while back, you'll see lots of polka dots popping up in our work recently :)

I guess great minds think alike :)
We just completed our projects based on the work of this amazing artist-architect.

Your students interpreted his work beautifully.

Lovely bright colors and beautiful lines.
