Hearts, ages 8 to 11

This is a popular project. I gave the students some conversation hearts. We talked about the shapes and did some thumbnails using different cropping, making sure we could show the sides as well as the top. I also gave the students simple formulas for making shadow colors. We used acrylic paint and did a larger one on heavy paper and a smaller one on 4 x 4 inch stretched canvas.
