Mixed Media Heart Art Project for Valentine's Day

First Grade Mixed Media HEARTS!  The project turned out pretty cool, but I think it was too big for first graders.  I gave them hearts to trace and they should have been smaller.  A 2" x 2" heart is big enough, for sure.


The kids traced a big heart๐Ÿ’™ (prolly 4"x 4").  If you use large hearts๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š, I would suggest them drawing and coloring only 3.  Unlimited hearts๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™ was a lovely, hot mess.  As I said, it is best to use small hearts๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ.

Once they traced the hearts๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›, they colored with oil pastel.

Then, they painted the background with tempera.

The last thing they did was drizzle paint on their hearts๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—.


These are hearts of all colors.
