Valentine Art Projects
Even though Matisse painted, sculpted and drew, he’s famously known for his use of cutout shapes from colored paper. Take this idea and help your child explore the artist’s use of paper with a Valentine’s Day cutout collage. As a bonus, this artsy activity builds fine motor skills and adds in a math lesson (geometry and spatial awareness).
- Card stock paper in white and Valentine’s Day colors – red, pink and purple (your child can also use different shades of the colors, such as hot pink, baby pink, maroon and magenta)
- Tempera paints in Valentine’s Day colors
- a paintbrush
- clear-drying glue
Start by creating a backdrop for the Valentine’s Day heart shapes. Have your child paint sections of an 8×10-inch (or larger) piece of white cardstock paper. Make blocks of different hues. Let the paint dry for at least one hour.
