Hundertwasser: Architect

Grade 6

Linda Pfisterer, Art Specialist

Students learn about Austrian artist and architect Friedrich Hundertwasser and look at the buildings he designed. Students design a part of a building - door, window or dome - in his style and add bright colors. The whimsical shapes and patterns should tell a bit about themselves.
