10 Valentine's Day Art projects and resources

Valentine’s Day Art Projects and Resource Round-up

Need a quick lesson idea for Valentine’s Day Art Projects?

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.

    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

    I’d like my kinder students to do #1 tomorrow. How do they start? Is it watercolor in four different sections with different watercolors? Then do they draw the hearts? Or is it crayon resist? Do they color the hearts first with crayons and then paint with watercolors?

      Hi Sue. These projects are from different sites and not Deep Space Sparkle lessons. If you follow the links it looks like the author describes the process: 1.) fold paper in fourths 2.) trace folded lines & draw a heart in each square with a black crayon 3.) Use crayons to add pops of color inside and around hearts (not coloring in everything) 4.) Paint over everything with watercolor (could be one color per square, or multiple colors per square). I hope that helps.
