I LOVE this project. Fourth and Fifth grade were shown artwork by Jim Dine. They had to create a composition with oil pastels of a heart/s! Everyone’s art had to be original and express the feelings of their heart.
OMG!!! They did such a wonderful job on these! I bet it was SO interesting hearing the ideas behind some of their heart designs!
These are stunning! Compliment your students for me.
These are beautiful! Can't wait to try it w/my 5th grade this week! :)
Wow these are amazing! I love the variety!
thank you for the sweet comments. It makes me excited when the kids get creative, and this was the best lesson for that. The subject was simple and non-threatening, and the kids just took off with their ideas! The kids were so in to their art that the room was SILENT and many of them filled the page completely and then wanted to make another one! Easy clean up too!
They look terrific. I may break out the oil pastels for this next week. But cleanup was easy? HUh? It always seems like someone drops and steps on an oil pastel in my room, and they're harder to clean off hands than anything else it seems. Not that I'm afraid of mess...
yes I know what you mean, Phy! We do floor checks every 15 minutes to eliminate the squished pastel on the floor nightmare! But it seems to come off hands with soap pretty well.
lysol wipes clean up oil pastels quickly and easily! What brand are these oil pastels? The colors are so vibrant!
These are great! Your photography is wonderful too.
Natalie, these are wonderful, I love jim Dine too. The kids really respond to his subject matter. I just started a blog and it has a jim dine project on it as well.
