Warm and Cool Hearts

Thanks to 'Kids Art Market' for this great and simple lesson I used for Valentine's Day with grade twos. 

I had the students fold a piece of paper in half, draw half a heart shape on the fold and cut the paper to form a heart-shaped stencil which was laid over another piece of paper. 
After discussing warm and cool colours, students chose whether to use warm or cool coloured oil pastels to colour over their stencil to form a heart on their page, then chose the opposite colour scheme for a dye wash background.
