Jim Dine inspired heART (1st)

This heART project is inspired by the artwork of Jim Dine. Earlier in the week first graders and I talked about texture (the way that something feels)... so I thought it fitting to begin this project with the same concept in mind.
Students began first by doing crayon rubbings and gathering as many textures as they could on their papers. Then once they were done with their crayon rubbings, they used oil pastels to draw hearts overtop of their textures (similar to the heart art done by Jim Dine).
The following day I gave them liquid glitter watercolor paints to paint overtop of their pictures and create a resist!
Love how they turned out - so colorful and full of implied textures! :)
Just perfect for Valentine's Day!
