6 Valentine’s Day Art Ideas That Inspire

Valentine's Day Art Projects

Another holiday arrives! February may be the shortest month, but this year, we’re packing in the holidays. Yesterday was Groundhog Day (he predicted six more weeks of winter, in case you were curious), and we’ve got Valentine’s and Chinese New Year screaming up fast behind. Here are a few ideas to inspire the artists in your classroom:

From Deep Space Sparkle

Patti from Deep Space Sparkle always has great ideas–I love these woven hearts made from Painted Paper and incorporating Picasso. What I really like, however, is that these hearts are large–placemat sized, in fact–so I may use them to make Valentine’s bags for my students.

From Buggy and Buddy

We did these chalk pastel on black paper heart pictures last year and glued them to front of manila envelopes. Then–voila!–instant mailbags. The kids did a simple chain stitch with yarn to create a handle for their mailbags, too. Simple, but lovely.

From Mrs. Jahner’s Art Room

I’d like to work more with clay and this spiral looks fun and easy. I bet it looks great with the glaze!

From Martha Stewart

Anything that catches the light is guaranteed to appeal to me. This project would incorporate Practical Life skills, too, since ironing is part of the process.

From Veetje

These button hearts and frames are from a Dutch site, and I love the intensity of the colors. It would be easy enough to find inexpensive wooden frames to paint. However, I’ve never had much luck locating cheap sources of buttons.

From Art is Basic

I’ve been collecting styrofoam meat trays to be used to create etchings for printing plates. These Valentine’s ones look awfully fun, don’t they?

There are plenty of Valentine’s Day art projects out there! Check out these selections too:
