In Art class, first grade students studied the artist Jim Dine. They learned that he is a living artist who was born in Ohio, but now lives in Europe. We talked about symbols and how people all over the world recognize what a heart is. We looked at different examples of Jim Dine’s work with hearts in them and then created these beautiful Jim Dine inspired heart paintings! First graders learned what it means to make a tint while creating these hearts. They also had a lot of fun using a fork to add details!
