This activity is an artistic card project using the Artist artwork and his/her personal photo.
This project was initially created as a Valentine activity for the art room. Students will create a Valentine Card, using Artist's Famous Artists Portraits/Photos and famous artwork that they draw themselves.
Or, it can be used as a collage project.
Or, It is also designed to make as a Valentine Heart Doll using the Artist's portrait as the head and their art work as the body.
I will use these pages with my 1st- 5th Graders. It is a fun way to help them learn their artists and artworks. Some parts may be modified for Kinders, such as the Conversation Hearts as a coloring page or Bingo Board.
It involves these art skills: cut and paste, creating, coloring, gluing, lettering, rhyming, matching and designing. Use of artists' photos is used to enhance their learning about each artist and their lives. It helps to make the artist more real, to see their photos.
