These art projects all more focused on the process more than product, sure they end up with a heart or many hearts but the focus is on how the art is made not what is made. One simple step that I do to help my students and kids focus on the process is to avoid showing them a sample. I find that when children see a sample they immediately focus on copying and “getting it right”. There is NO right or wrong with art. If you are a preschool teacher like me you’ve probably felt the pressure to make things to prove you are doing more than “just playing” at school ( which is a topic for another day) while also trying to provide your students with developmentally appropriate activities. Finding that balance is what these heart shaped process art activities are all about.
