Shrinky Dink Hearts with Jim Dine

Preschool Lesson Plan:

Hearts and drawing hearts 
How do we draw a heart?
First we draw the letter m or the number three laying down
Then we draw a V under neth: let’s try it
Pop Art: what is popular for you guys?
What do you enjoy doing or playing with at home?
If you were to draw your most favorite toy what would you draw?
Pop artists took simple items or poular culture items and turned them into fine art
ARTIST:  Jim Dine (born June 16, 1935)
 Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, attended the University of Cincinnati 
Received a BFA from Ohio University in 1957. 
He first earned respect in the art world with his Happenings
In 1962 Dine's work was included, along with Andy Warhol and Wayne Thiebaud, in the historically important and ground-breaking gallery show:  New Painting of Common Objects.
This exhibition is historically considered one of the first "Pop Art" exhibitions in America. 
These painters started a movement, in a time of social unrest, which shocked America and the Art world and changed modern Art forever, "Pop Art".
In the early 1960s Dine produced pop art with items from everyday life. These provided commercial as well as critical success
