This one was very relaxing to do. I printed the hearts out and then colored each one a solid color with crayon. Then I went over it with blue and green watercolors, let them dry, and added detail and highlights to the hearts with oil pastel. The idea was based on the work of modern artist Jim Dine who did a lot of heart art.

Here's a link to the original idea at Art Projects for Kids.

  1. So sweet and happy is this one. What a fun process - coloring, painting, etc. I like this one. It's hearts which reminds one of youthfulness, but it's much mature-feeling than what elementary hearts we normally associate it to. Does that make any sense? It's very beautiful! Where can I start putting in my orders?
