Valentine’s Day Heart Painting

A Valentine’s Day art for kids project can be a good time to try a new process. This colorful art comes from using crayons, rubber cement and watercolor paint.

It’s a great way to show kids how amazing their art can be if they just focus on adding lots of layered color, both when coloring with crayons and then when painting as well. The rubber cement will resist the paint in large strokes, and allow for a quick and easy two toned look.
