M's Canvas Heart Art

M's Heart Canvas

Yikes! I almost forgot to share M's Heart Sampler. When she saw me making the "sample" for Mrs. Z's art auction project, she wanted to make a sample of the art auction project for her class.

I had many bright colors out for my fish and that suited Miss M perfectly. But first I helped her use a ruler and mark off rectangles for her background. Then the paints came out and she made a valiant attempt at keeping her rectangles even.

She painted 2-3 coats and then started on her hearts after the background dried.

She put on her "art" glasses and explained how they helped her paint.

She picked out her own colors and placement and combined some plain craft acrylics with a few metallic colors. Not too shabby for a five year old!

 It turned out pretty fabulous and now has a place of honor in our living room. It makes me smile every time I look at it.
