Hearts and Valentines

Hearts figure big in the artwork of young children. Some critics call “heart art” trivial or kitschy but the heart stands as a symbol for all a child loves and cares about. Watching kindergarteners master drawing a heart or cutting it out of paper shows determination. The hearts featured here, on Valentines Day 2014, have appeared throughout the school year. Each shows a different art medium.
