Valentine’s Day Art Projects and Resource Round-up

10 Valentine's Day Art projects and resources

Need a quick lesson idea for Valentine’s Day?

I’ve been pinning like crazy to my Valentine Pinterest Board because I absolutely love Valentine’s Day art projects. All those red tints! It’s also an opportunity to get creative and try something new. I love sourcing new ideas but I find I’m always drawn to the projects that combine art techniques and maybe an inspiration form a famous artist.

Here are some of my favorite finds. Hopefully, you’ll find the perfect lesson to do at home or in your classroom. No glitter required!

    I noticed a pretty significant increase in page views on my blog and saw that you included me in this little roundup. Thanks! I’m glad you like my project. I’m actually familiar with your site here, I’ve browsed it many times in the past when I was teaching art for some inspiration. You have some great ideas and projects here. Thanks again for spreading the love 🙂 -Misty
