They worked in groups to read the article then answered the questions and discussed at their tables which led to some good discussion. We did oil pastels for the hearts and water color backgrounds. They did their paint brush "tool" inspired by Dine also. My favorite part was looking at titles of Dine's pieces and my students commenting on how they thought they could do better. So they had to really think and analyze their own piece and come up with a creative meaningful title. Some were your usual..but some really were well thought. More to come... have 2 more classes to finish. I think they are going to look fabulous when hung in a grouping.
Thank you Jim Dine for your heart inspired art pieces.
Next week we are writing letters to Mr. Dine... cause we cant get enough RAW ART!
