My third graders have been having a little fun with hearts this week. After exploring the heart paintings created by American artist Jim Dine, they got to work on their own work of “heart”.
While Andrea Bocelli sang some beautiful Italian love songs, we painted Valentine’s Day inspired words with Q-tips to create our background. My normally chatty third graders were absolutely quiet as they concentrated on writing special words with their sticks. It was heaven for this art teacher!
While these were drying, we created a colorful heart to add on top. LOVE!
