Jim Dine is known for bold colorful paintings and fun designs. My students created 3 different art lessons which focused on hearts with bold patterns and delightful colors.
First, students created a heart with pencil, then filled them in with oil pastels and overlapping lines. After the heart was filled in students added more lines and textures in the background.
To add additional color, students chose one liquid watercolor to paint over the background textures.
This created an oil pastel resist.
To complete the project, students glued the paper onto bright construction paper. They added a border of painted paper strips around the edge of the construction paper, then some fun patterns with oil pastels for added interest.
Here are two additional heart mixed media art projects using tempera paint and oil pastels.
