Do you love nursery rhymes? I absolutely love the playful stories that have been passed down for decades. Why not incorporate art and literature? The Queen of Hearts and his majesty, the King of Hearts, is perfect when you need a 60 minute art lesson or an easy to follow portrait directed drawing. Included in the PDF are step by step directions that create colorful patterns with hearts, and portraits that express funny facial expressions. Both are inspired by the traditional nursery rhyme, The Queen of Hearts.
The Queen and King of Heart Portraits
My second graders created these adorable symmetrical hearts. Before creating we read the poem Queen of Hearts.
The Knave of Hearts brought back the tarts and vowed he’d steal no more.
Imagine any type of pattern.
These lessons are great for ages 5-8 but any age student can create awesome artwork with these directions.
The PDF includes:
Step by step directions with full-color photos
Background information about the King and Queen of Hearts
Queen of Hearts poem
