3rd Grade Jim Dine Heart Plaques

3rd grade artists learned about the life and art of Jim Dine. They looked at the themes of his work and thought about why he chose them. 

We also had a lot of discussion around a slide presentation all about Jim Dine. After this, we created sketches of our own style heart art using shape (2D) in preparation for our 3D (form) clay collage sculpture! We talked about how to ensure that our heart stood out from the background using color schemes and added patterns to sculpture for added interest.

We glued popsicle sticks and jewels together for our base and used twiteez wire and beads to create a hanger! We had a blast!
