Mixed Media Hearts

5th graders learned about pop artist Jim Dine. Students created a mixed media art project using wood, nails, wire, magazine cut outs, and yarn. Students first painted their block of wood red. They then choose a love quote and cut the words or letters out from magazines, then glued them to the wooden block. Students then created a heart by using a hammer and nails to outline a heart shape. Students then wrapped the heart shape in yarn. Lastly, they created an arrow using wire. They turned out great, and each one is unique!
