Hundertwasser Dream Works in Progress!

Third and fourth grade students have been learning about the artist and architect Hundertwasser. He was a dreamer and a lover of nature. He was brimming with creative ideas, and his artwork is full of both life and color. 

Inspired by this out of the box thinker, the students have been creating their own architectural designs for their "dream homes." Students began by sketching with pencil. Afterwards, they traced their pencil lines with sharpie to make bold lines that stand out. Lastly, the children have been coloring using brightly color markers.

"Everyone should be able to build, and as long as this 

freedom to build does not exist, the present-day planned 

architecture cannot be considered art at all."
~Friedensreich Hundertwasser

Students have incorporated many of Hundertwasser's ideas into their artwork. They have included a strong connection with nature, bright colors, many curving lines, lollipop trees, hidden faces, awesome details, and a great deal of windows.

"You are a guest of nature--behave."

"When we dream alone it is only a dream, but when many 

dream together it is the beginning of a new reality."


These awesome works will be on display for you to enjoy at the Art Show and Concert this May!
