Kindergarten Jim Dine Hearts

Kindergarten artists studied the art of Jim Dine! We looked at the colors, shapes, and textures in his artwork and talked about why he might have created heart art. We then drew our own heart art in time for Valentines's Day and practiced our use of warm and cool colors!

Our kindergarten artists had fun thinking about who they were going to give their heart art to for Valentine's day!


  1. For some reason kindergarten, Jim Dine, and warm & cool colors just seem to fit so well together! That's some pretty impressive kindergarten marker skills!


    1. At the beginning of the year, I do a big story about a fictional character named "Mr. White Space" who is a sneaky little dude who likes to sneak into kids artworks, go home with them and do all kinds of mischievous things. So, we try to find where he has snuck onto our papers and color on his nose. It works miracles with Kindergarten.... and my older kids think it's funny. :)
