Crazy Hearts Club

1-Art club hearts


Art club students created these wild and crazy patterned hearts collages. We meet every other Wednesday morning before school. This group is comprised of 4th and 5th graders, boys and girls.

Sometimes I think it is a social club and I am their entertainment!

But, at the end of the class they always surprise me with such unique and fun projects!


We used model magic to create the hearts and glued craft sticks together.

We painted the sticks and let dry.

The next session we painted the hearts and added more patterns

and buttons to the background.






Materials Needed:

Craft Sticks


Model Magic

Tempera Paint


Keep on Creating!

    Thanks! No we just used tempera paint. I use prang and dick blick. They are pretty opaque and my students really apply it on heavy.

    I know what you mean about feeling like 4 -6th graders are really there just to socialize, but you must be doing something right because these are awesome. Your kids must feel safe with you and happy or they wouldn't talk at all – like the first day of school.

    Do they paint the sticks before or after they are glued together?

    This is probably a dumb question but did you glue with Elmer's?

    Hi Shanna, I used Elmer's Glue All for the sticks and Tacky Glue to hold down the Model Magic Hearts
