Today our theme was "The Heart Has Stories to Tell." I cut out 3.5 inch squares from cardboard for each person to decorate. The only requirement was that there be a heart on each square. After painting and decorating, each person then wrote what heartfelt memory it represented for them. Some were happy, some were broken-hearted. Some were simple ideas and others were more complex.
I cut a piece of foamboard into a 20x20 inch square and lightly traced a grid on it so we would know where to place the squares. When they had dried, I glued the painted delights onto the board and Voila! A composite painting.
