The artist Jim Dine uses hearts, bathrobes, and tools for subject matter for much of his artwork, which makes him a kid-friendly artist to introduce to your students. I have done many different projects related to this artist, and the kids always enjoy learning about him and seeing photos and prints of his art. His heart art is especially fun to introduce for a Valentine's day lesson. This particular lesson is an attempt at re-creating a painting of his called "Confetti Heart". I have used this book by Jean E.Feinberg when introducing Dine to my students. It has a good collection of his artwork in colored photos. Unfortunately the heart used in this lesson is not in there. I made a color copy off the internet as a resource.
