5 Artists that Use Hearts in their Artwork

I created a slideshow of 5 artists that use hearts in their artwork! My plan is to show my distance learners this slideshow which features a range of heart artworks and then have them create their own heart-inspired artwork using their own choice of media and creativity. Feel free to use the slideshow with your students to show them some heart themed artwork. Perfect for Valentine’s Day!

The five artists that I used in this slideshow maybe are already known to you, many bloggers have used their artworks in heart themed lessons: Jim Dine, James Goldcrown, Chris Uphues, Romero Britto and a new-to-me artist EttaVee. Someone posted on a Facebook group about her artwork and I am in love with the bright colors and brushstrokes. Her artwork was recently on the cover of the Blick catalog. You can still order yourself a copy of the catalog from the Blick website.

Enjoy the slideshow and feel free to show me any projects you have done inspired by these artists. I’d love to see them!

A couple of years ago we made this beautiful heart artwork inspired by Romero Britto, which we auctioned off for a school fundraiser.

Over the years, I have done a whole bunch of heart themed artwork. It’s a fun and festive theme to use near Valentine’s Day. Here are a few old blog posts for some ideas.

    Grand Rising Great Ideas Thanks for sharing.

  2. I prefer to follow social media accounts that reflect an artist’s unique personality, and which don’t just feel like a grid of paintings.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
