Oil Pastel Hearts

I came across this picture on Pinterest http://www.pinterest.com/pin/46654546113883011/

These hearts look as if they’re painted on tile. But I thought the design would easily translate to the classroom using paper and oil pastels. The students were instructed to draw a large heart. They were each given a ruler and told to draw 4 slanted vertical lines and 5 slanted horizontal lines across the paper. The next step was to add color with oil pastels. Each student chose 2 colors for the heart and two colors for the shapes outside the heart. To make sure that shapes next to each other were not colored the same, students had to label each shape. This made coloring their design much simpler. Warm colors were chosen for the heart and cool colors were used for the rest of the shapes.

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.
