5th grade Hundertwasser Lollipop Trees

5th graders learned about the art of Freidrich Hundertwasser. We read some of the book, "Hundetwasser for Kids" and watched a variety of youtube videos of his work. He was a versatile artist who created architecture as well as a unique painting style. In many of his paintings, he became known for his "lollipop trees" or trees with abstract concentric circles. 

We created a colorful patterned background and used fabric and sequins to create our lollipop trees collage.
