"A Faithful Attempt" is designed to showcase a variety of K-12 art lessons, the work of my art students, as well as other art-related topics. Projects shown are my take on other art teacher's lessons, lessons found in books or else designed by myself.

James Goldcrown style Heart Collage

Street artist James Goldcrown  (@jgoldcrown) was the artist inspiration for the Valentines themed heart collage. 
I found the project idea HERE and just switched up the artist to James Goldcrown.

Born in West London, Goldcrown is a self-taught artist/photographer now based in Los Angeles. He is most famous for his Bleeding Hearts/Lovewall murals which started showing up everywhere on Instagram back in 2015. 

See all the steps that I posted previously about HERE

We started by looking at photos of his art, then watched a Youtube video interviewing him about his collaboration with Sketchers shoes. One of my students was actually wearing a pair!

I think one of the keys to this project is using really true black construction paper. Tu Ray and Crayola make good ones. I sometimes also buy a rich black cardstock from Michaels or Wal Mart.

This is a great lesson for reinforcing and practicing good cutting and gluing skills. 

Some finished Grade 4 - 6 artworks!
