The Suitcase Lady

The artist Jim Dine is known for painting and sculpting large hearts. He makes us all look at this universal symbol of love with new eyes.

Children love Jim Dine’s artwork, and I love introducing them to it. On a visit to one of my favorite classes, I combined a lesson on Mr. Dine’s hearts with thoughts on kindness. Each student chose and lettered a quotation. Then, everyone drew and designed a large heart to join with the words, thus making a poster. What a lovely day we all had!

Thanks to all of you at Lake Bluff school in grades one and two.  And more thanks to my computer savvy husband for turning their artwork into the following video. Kind people rock!
