While getting ready to teach my last art class, Levi and I decided to make a sample at home before I taught the project to the children at school.
I taught the children how to draw a valentine heart shape. Then we covered the back of the drawing with bleeding tissue paper. This kind of tissue paper oozes lots of color when it is wet. The children used valentine colors and covered their papers. We saturated them with water. The next day, the tissue was dry…and all the lovely color had transferred to the heart. They then cut them out.
I’m sorry I don’t have a picture of the rest of them, but here is Levi’s. I love to frame children’s art, And, it’s quite easy. I just bought a cheap frame from Michael’s and backed his heart with a piece of scrapbook paper. Makes such a pretty picture! And, oh how special a child feels when they see their art framed and put in a place of honor. Change it up with the seasons….or just start a seasonal grouping of art work through the year!
I love this…happy heart…happy color…from my happy valentine! (Another Lulu/Levi project)
