Another project from Cassie Stephens!
This project was inspired by the street artist, J Goldcrown. He was originally from London but now lives in LA and NYC where he makes his work. He spray paints layers upon layers of hearts on walls using bright, vibrant colors!
This was a quick one-day'er for our 2nd graders. I don't typically do holiday related projects unless I can find an artist who ties in with that theme. J Goldcrown seemed like a perfect opportunity to practice drawings hearts!
Students spent class drawing heart after heart using chalk. They went over their hearts several times so that they appeared a little bit brighter and bolder. We also focused on overlapping to create a layered effect. This was great practice for students who struggled initially drawing hearts. The repetitive shape helped them to practice it over and over. Lastly, they traced each heart a couple times with their fingers so it smudged just a bit.
