A Heart in the style of Romero Britto

 In the style of Ramero Britto


"Romero Britto, the founder of the Happy Art Movement has created a visual language of love, hope and happiness all its own that inspires millions worldwide. Brazilian-born and Miami-made, Britto is an international artist that uses vibrant, iconic imagery and fun patterns to reflect his optimistic view of the world around him. Self-taught at an early age, Britto painted on scraps of paper or cardboard or any medium he could find before coming into his own and traveling to Paris where he was introduced to the works of Matisse and Picasso. His appreciation of these masters influenced him to create an iconic style that The New York Times described, “exudes warmth, optimism and love”. Britto’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in over 100 countries".

Flying Hearts by Romero Britto

This is the art work we will look at to create our own Romero Britto styled heart.


White paper


Water and a brush

Markers-Washable markers work best but you can use what ever you have.


Step 1. Using your Sharpie, draw the outline of a heart that fills the page.


Step 2. Draw 4 straight lines inside the heart to break it up into 5 different spaces. 



Step 3.  Fill 4 of the sections up with your favorite lines. 

Step 4.  Fill in the last section with your favorite shape.


  Step 5. Using your markers color 3 sections of your heart.


Step 6.  Get out a container of water and a paint brush. If you do not have

a paint brush your finger will do.



Step 7.   Make sure you put something under your art work like

a paper towel or a newspaper before you start. Using the paintbrush

paint the water over the marker and allow the colors to bleed together.

Pull some of the color into the 2 white spaces. You can let the color

bleed outside the heart as well.

Step 8.   Allow the paint to dry and then add your initials around the

border of the heart. Your initials are the first letter of your first name

and the first letter of your last name. For example my name is 

Lee Darter so my initials are LD. Romero Britto likes to use letters 

in his art work, let's try it too.


Bonus Idea...

Cut your heart out and glue it to black paper.


Make sure to take a photo and submit your heart art

into the Art Room Blog Facebook Page.
