This lesson introduces art techniques of value and shading. Students will learn about the pop artist Jim Dine and his work. By working with hearts in the style of Jim Dine, students will practice value and shading both with single hearts and intersecting hearts while experimenting with colour and contrast.

Before beginning the lesson, show images of Jim Dine’s heart paintings as well as other images of hearts. Give thema few minutes to respond to the images. Encourage comparisons and contrasting statements as well as descriptions of what they see.

About the Artist

Jim Dine was “ Born in 1935 at Cincinnati, Ohio. He studied at the University of Cincinnati and at the Boston School of Fine and Applied Arts in Boston, Massachusetts from 1953 to 1957. In 1957 he received a Bachelor
of Fine Arts degree from the Ohio University, Athens. He moved to New York in 1959. As one of the founding popartists, he staged his rst Happenings with Claes Oldenburg and Allan Kaprow at the Judson Gallery, New York. He had his rst one-man exhibition at the Reuben Gallery, New York. Between 1960 and 1965 he had various guestprofessorships, among others at Yale University, New Haven, and Oberlin College, Ohio. He was represented at

the Venice Biennale in 1964, and at the documenta “4” in Kassel in 1968. Since 1967 he has taught at the College
of Architecture, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York. He lives in New York and London. In his paintings, drawings, sculptures, graphics, collages and assemblages he combined different techniques with handwritten texts and wordsand set real everyday objects against unde ned backgrounds. The objects were both commonplace and personal, both poetic and ironic, re ecting his own feelings about life such as his series of hearts. His constantly varied bathrobe,transparent to the gaze of the world, was a kind of metaphor for a self-portrait. In the 70s he turned to representational painting of a traditional kind.”

Play idea: Collage – Mahi toi

Children create art and patterns by arranging different pieces of
material in different shapes. These are then glued onto paper or cardboard.

Collage can help children to:

  • learn skills such as gluing, sticking, taping, stapling, cutting, tearing
  • experiment with different resources
  • socialise with other children as they share materials and tools
  • be creative and learn about design, patternmaking, dimension and composition
  • gain concentration skills
  • learn to solve problems and develop their own ideas.

Support children by:

  • keeping spaces and materials tidy and uncluttered
  • making sure there is enough equipment and that it is in working order
  • having a wide variety of resources available
  • talking and listening to them
  • using rich descriptive language when talking with them about what they are doing and the equipment and materials they are using
  • showing them how to use tools, such as scissors and staplers, properly and safely
  • talking with them about environmental sustainability and respecting nature.

Providing for Collage

A large, flat table low enough for children to work on and around is useful. Keep collage items in separate containers, well stocked and displayed next to the table (not on it). This allows children to help themselves and have an uncluttered space to work at. Children can use collage materials outside as well as inside.

Ideas for equipment

  • tools such as strong glue, round-ended scissors, staplers, tape, string
  • large and small boxes, cartons, tubes, containers, lids
  • paper and cardboard – white, coloured, lined, unlined, greeting cards, envelopes, crepe, silver, cellophane, magazines
  • string, cord, wool, tape, twine (all colours and thicknesses
