A W e a v i n g Jim Dine Project

Heads up!  The ❤weaving project was a 3 class period project.  The project was done by 5th graders and they rocked it!

Directions:
1-I cut a 9" x 9" sheet of paper.
On this paper the kids used warm oil pastels to color a ❤.
2-I cut a 7" x 9" sheet of paper and the kids used cool oil pastels to color a ❤.
Make sure the kids are coloring the hearts with the 9" length on both ❤.  See example and make extra sure or you will have an extra mess.

3-I cut VERY CAREFULLY on a paper cutter the larger 9" x 9" ❤.  Make sure the cut goes across the ❤.  For me, it took much concentration.

4-I cut the smaller 7" x 9" ❤into 1" strips.
5-The kids started weaving the smaller heart into the larger heart.  They begin the first strip going under, and the next strip going over.

Make sure the kids outline the hearts very dark.  The bigger and bolder the outlined heart in the center, the more the heart pops out on the finished artwork.  MAKE THEM OUTLINE THE HEARTS IN THE CENTER, PLEASE!
Of course, encourage the kids to press down and make the artwork with oil pastel dark.
