ART Hearts!

We had so much fun creating our Jim Dine style ART Hearts mixed media paintings! We used this unusual heart art by Jim Dine as our model:  

The Handkerchief, 1993
(woodcut and etching, hand-colored) 

The heart on the right was my interpretation of the project using our media:

bleeding art tissue paper

red acrylic paint

black and white pastels

This piece is the demonstration that I did in class. Can you see the differences?

The students loved this project because it involved an unusual combination of media to create a truly mixed media piece! Also it was kind of messy and you didn't really have to plan much - just let the media do its thing. We liked how we could make it a little funky or grungy - it has sort of a graffiti look.

This great art project idea came from Edna Lemm at Do Art! Thanks for sharing, Edna!
