The first step to this project was creating colored tissue paper backgrounds painted on with glue. Only red, yellow and blue tissue paper was used to get their secondary colors to appear. The next class students learned how to create a heart that included design, line design, detail and shapes. Using glue as a drawing tool students had fun outlining their heart designs while getting control over a heavy glue bottle. When the glue dried students learned about the artist Jim Dine and had the opportunity to view a slideshow of his work while discussing what colors and textures he used. Using oil pastels, students colored their entire design making sure to blend and experiment with their colors. This project tied in art elements; line, color, shapes and texture.
