Valentine’s day is all about love and hearts, something that is perfectly captured in this simple Valentines day art.
Bring out your watercolors, or any other art supply, for that matter, and get ready to make this wonderful showcase piece.
This art project comes with a template that can be used when working with smaller kids or kids that need some confidence when it comes to creating art.
How to a Make Simple Valentines Day Art
What you need:
- template (optional)
- art supplies (we love watercolors)
- black marker (optional)
- a sheet of construction paper (black works out really well, other colors are fine too)
Print out the template.
You can use regular print paper, although we find that heavier print paper works out better.
Watercolors will work out really great for this project; however, they are far from being the only art supply your kids can use. Crayons, pencils, markers, fingerprinting… Let your child’s imagination do its work.
No need to stick to one medium only either. You have the kids layer different art supplies (like using a white crayon and watercolors). They can color each heart with a different medium.
Drawing different textures to hearts with black marker over watercolors works out pretty neat.
Take the first heart (it doesn’t matter which one it is) and apply glue on the back.
Repeat with all other hearts, glue them one next to the other, overlapping, one over the other. Go with the flow and position them however you see fit.
It will make a nice classroom decoration, it will radiate love from the fridge, or it can even be tired into a nice Valentine’s day card!
