Jim Dine and Hearts

February 9, 2018 • After School Workshop

Jim Dine is a representational maker, working in drawing and sculpture. He uses a basic image and explores it, repeats it and represents it in different media. 

One of Jim Dine’s shapes of choice is the heart, and what better time for our students to explore heart shapes than Valentines!

We painted hearts, and we sculpted hearts, using pinecones as the base! (There was also a quick deviation into drawing cheese, which was hard on our teacher from Wisconsin.)

Lastly, the kids made slime. Because what says “I love you” more than slime? Most things. Most things say “I love you” more than slime. For example, Valentines Day cards.
