* Each student folded 3 coffee filters in half and cut a heart shape. They designed each heart individually by wetting both sides with a damp rag. Using a paper towel underneath their heart (colors will bleed through) they designed one side, making sure to use a lot of color and fill up the white space. Once the heart was opened, they dried quickly! One class session was spent designing and gluing the hearts on a white 12 x 18 paper.
* The second class session we discussed the finishing process. Each heart had to have a distinctive decorative border. The backgrounds were designed using two different elements and two colors; one small idea, and one medium size idea. Kids are just amazing when it comes to being creative! I got some cool ideas! Check out our results! Some looked like they were tie-dyed!
