Heart Art

These pastel and paint hearts are now hanging in our classroom. 

I cut the heart shapes out for the children prior to starting. Then the children carefully drew and painted their colourful lines, starting from the outside. I encouraged the children to choose colours that they thought would make their art bright and eye-catching. (We always seem to have a discussion prior to starting our artwork about how black would probably not be a good choice.)

I saw plenty of tongues poking out between lips, which as well as having the cuteness factor, I think this displays the children's concentration and perseverance during this task.

 Our heart art looks very eye-catching spinning gently in the breeze.

We have also been reading this 'Heart' poem all week.
