This painting project is based on artist Laurel Burch, whose artwork is filled with bright colors and wild patterns.
Students drew their cats on 18" X 24" colored construction paper and painted them using tempera. When dry, they were outlined using a silver Sharpie marker, cut out, and glued on to a background made of wrapping paper (which was glued to a poster board). This would be a great way to use up rolls of wallpaper, as well. We had several positive comments on this project and it was quick and easy.
