I am still amazed by how these turned out. The project was done with three different classes, ranging from Year 4 to Year 6. This was the first time that we have looked at Hundertwasser's work and I think the results are just stunning. After looking at samples his work and discussing his use of organic shapes, bright colours, black lines and his connection to the environment, the students set about creating their own pieces. We used inks and black wax crayons for the initial paintings. Students could then select materials such as buttons, wool, collage materials and glitter to add an extra layer of details. I have displayed many of the final creations and they have received much praise from our school community.
