Concentric Hearts

Concentric Hearts
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

by Andrea Mulder-Slater

This is a super simple 15 minute filler activity where children learn how to transform washable markers into watercolors.

Note: This is a condensed version of a  KinderArt Club lesson plan. Members can find the full version inside the Hearts a Plenty Bundle.

     

What You Need:

  • Thick white paper (Sulphite), 9″ x 12″ (one per student)
  • Washable markers
  • Paintbrushes and water
  • Scissors (optional)
  • Black construction paper (optional)
  • Glue (optional)

What You Do:

Concentric means circles and rings that are inside one another and have the same center. Following this concept, students will create concentric heart paintings.

To begin with, children draw a heart in the middle of their paper using a washable marker.

Then, they continue to add more hearts radiating out from the original center heart, until they run out of paper.

Using a wet (but not soaking) paintbrush, children run the brush along each of the marker lines, one at a time.

The marker lines will run and bleed, much like watercolor paints.

Give it a try and keep creating!
