The Month of June #5 -Jim Dine

Jim Dine (1935-) is a painter, sculptor, and graphic artist who uses images of everyday objects in his artwork. He adds a richness to the art through his personal passions and everyday experiences. His repeated use of familiar and personally significant objects, such as a robe, hands, tools, and hearts, is a signature of his art.

                   “Tool Drawing II”, 1983

We looked at many examples of his colorful and uniquely painted hearts.

So beautiful!
The kids traced a heart using pastels and a stencil, and then colored them in-






Some added watercolor over the pastel







   Lovely flowers!




They were very creative!


                                        






A great way for the kids to show their feelings and expressions visually!
