Grade 2 Cool Cats

Kids love drawing cats! For this project I decided to add a twist and let my students imagine their cats with human qualities.

They first drew their cats in a human portrait style–showing the head, neck, shoulders and arms. Next they added clothing and a hats. Cat ears NEEDED to be seen! Each cat also had to be holding something in it’s paw related to who it was (artist cat-easel, rockstar cat-microphone, fairy cat-wand etc.. )

The kids colored in with oil pastels and painted the backgrounds with watered down paint.


Don’t they look lovely?
