Happy Valentine’s Day, everybody! Have a great day filled with love – wherever you may find it today. Have fun and spread the love (and art).
In case you are still looking for last-minute card inspiration for your special-someone, here are some ideas you can use.
Show your love Robert Indiana style. Print out the page included. Cut the letters out and compose your message out of them. Then glue them on a card (or a picture) and color them. It’s that easy and results are beautiful. Have fun and spread the love & art.
There is another artist who would be a great match for the Valentine-day’s candy: Andy Warhol. What if he decided to paint the Sweethearts box instead of the can of soup? Try it, or click here to download the .pdf you can print out and color. Just fill in the hearts with messages, experiment with different colors (for the boxes and for the backgrounds), have fun.
Getting ready for Valentine’s Day? In the following weeks, I’ll introduce some really simple-to- do art-inspired projects… today it is “Dancer” card for your Valentine (inspired by Henri Matisse). Enjoy.
You need: black, blue and yellow paper, card (or card stock paper of any color), scissors, glue and 10 minutes of your kid’s time.
1. First let your child draw:
- a person in a funny pose (on the black paper)
- a little heart (on the red one)
- name of the recipient / hearts / organic shapes (on the yellow one)
2. Cut it all out and glue it onto the blue paper and onto the card.
And if you want to learn more about Matisse and his collages, wait for the first issue of ArTree… the Kickstarter campaign is going to be launched in 1-2 weeks. Or click here in the meantime (it is the Pinterest page that features all the artists covered in the first issue)…
