Chris Uphues Hearts Art Game
You will create a Chris Uphues hearts drawing by rolling the die and collecting the different faces required to create it.
First, use the tracers on page 4 to draw five overlapping hearts. Or, draw your own overlapping hearts! Then roll the die to select the first face. Draw it on one of the hearts. Roll the die four more times, drawing each face on the remaining hearts.
Using washable markers, outline all the hearts. Then use the side of the marker to draw rainbow lines from hearts to the edge of the picture. Lastly, dip a brush in water and carefully smudge it in the marker inside all the hearts to paint them in. If you need to neatly add more “paint” to them, smudge some marker on a scrap piece of paper and use that as a paint palette.
First, print out the game and picture directions back-to-back. Then give them dice and watch them have fun creating their own art project independently. Once completed, have students use the self-assessment rubrics to evaluate their artwork based on craftsmanship, creativity, following directions, work habits, project goals, and clean up. And then have them complete the “Big Ideas” sheet so they can connect the creation process to their learning.
