This Lesson came from an art teacher's blog: artprojectsforkids.org. I stumbled across this for a short and quick art history lesson for 1st graders. I followed the directions from this site for drawing steps. The only thing I did differently was encouraged students to use lots of patterns in their artwork. I showed students the work done by Laurel Burch... The cats are purely abstract. This was a fun and quick project to make!
