Author Eric Telchin has taken over 3000 photographs of hearts he sees in his world around him. Some of them are published in his book, See a Heart, Give a Heart.
The possibilities for an art teacher to expand on this book are absolutely endless and I know many of you will think of ways to use it in your rooms.
I thought about taking the thought, "create a heart" and having students use what they know about color theory to make the first part of their HEART ART. This version has students drawing a one inch border and then using cake tempera to mix and make squares of analogous colors in a grid arrangement.
This is such a fun idea to play around with. Actually, after reading the book, I found myself looking for heart shapes in nature any time I took a walk. It can get to be addicting!!
