I got the idea for this after seeing so many coloring book pages being done by artists I admire.
Because it is so close to valentine’s day, I had the students use a heart outline and then fill in with lines and shapes.
Talking with one of the parent volunteers, I said wouldn’t it be fun to make a coloring book and sell them as a fundraiser for the foundation or have them at the auction. I brought the idea to my principal and he said great let’s do it.
We decided to donate the profits to a teacher at our site who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and will be out the rest of the year. Our principal and a few teachers will choose 30 hearts to create the book and our district publishing department will make them up for us.
