Repousse Valentine Hearts

K/1 completed another Valentine inspired project using the ‘repousse’ technique. (Repousse – shaped or ornamented with patterns in relief made by hammering or pressing on the reverse side —used especially of metal)

Students were given a heart shaped piece of paper. They were instructed to draw a  simple picture or design. They were then given a thin metal shaped heart. They placed their paper heart over the metal and traced the design, pressing firmly with a pencil. The next step was to add color to the metal. They did this using colored, permanent markers. Students then glued their hearts on to a watercolor painted page from a fairy tale. The last step was to add a simple design using the colored markers. A fun project introducing a new technique 🙂

About stephwheatley

Formerly from Britain, I have lived in the USA since 1989. My qualifications are in library science, but I've had a passion for all things artsy and crafty for as long as I can remember! I became the Primary Art Teacher at Shady Oak Christian School in 2009 and am thoroughly enjoying myself. I teach students at both Shady Oak Christian School and Shady Oak Primary School. It's wonderful to be able to share my passion at a place that believes in the importance of learning through creativity. Please check out the Shady Oak websites at http://www.shadyoak.net/ and http://www.shadyoakprimary.com/ to learn more about these unique schools located in Richmond, TX.
