Laurel Burch Inspired Cats

In fourth grade we looked at the artworks of Laurel Burch, an American Artist and designer, born in California. Students were asked to design a sitting cat using very basic lines. Next, they were encouraged to use three different tones of chalk pastels and color in the cat. Then another three tones of a different color were used to blend the background together. The final step was to add a pattern into the cat or into the background. The fourth graders did an awesome job. For fun we ended our project by naming our cats. Please say hello to our Chats Francais.
