More Tints and Shades Hearts!

I love seeing everyone's beautiful hearts. Here are some hearts I did with 2nd graders.
1. Cut heart glue down.
2. Paint symmetrical designs around hearts.
3. Let dry then add oil pastels designs on top of painted designs

Materials: Pints, Reds and Purples
12 x 12 construction paper
11 x 11 construction paper
6 x 6 construction paper for hearts
brushes tempera paint
oil pastels

Ps. My school secretary took these photos for the schools website! I thought it was cute she said she is constantly looking for art projects!


  1. I love the new header to the blog. You have a wonderful sense of color and design. jan

  2. As always, just love your projects!

  3. What a feast for the eyes! I think I might use this on a smaller scale as a 'filler' project while we work our way toward finishing/assessing other projects this coming week...

  4. OOH so pretty!!! They make me think of sweet cupcakes!

  5. I LOVED this post. I showed the hearts to my class of little 4/5yo's and they loved them too and were inspired to make the most gorgeous Valentines cards (I have posted them on my blog). I think there will be a lot of gratefully parents today :) Thank you so much for sharing. Shar

  6. I love the hearts. I thought the other day I saw an assignment on your spot that had several different heart assignments. It was called HeARTwork. There were heart dream weavings, heart pictures with tissue paper and hearts painted by folding the paper. I can't seem to find my way back. Do you know what I'm talking about?
