Let’s give some love to Jim Dine!

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. 

One project that we created was a textured heart. 

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.
Let dry.


This created an oil pastel resist. 
To complete the project students glued the paper onto bright construction paper and added a border of painted paper strips around the edge of the construction paper. Add some fun patterns with oil pastels for added interest.
