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.
