Jim Dine; Heart Inspired Art

Jim Dine, an American painter, graphic artist, sculptor and poet from the Pop Art period was famous for his series of heart paintings. When asked what his fascination with the hearts, “I have no idea but it’s mine and I use it as a template for all my emotions/feelings. It’s a landscape for everything.” The students were asked “If your heart could have many colors, what would it look like?” They also talked about what makes your heart feel happy and what actions can we do to show our love to someone. -Ms. Monica
