|'Cat and Bird' by Paul Klee. Image via wikimedia.|
This is a simple lesson based on Paul Klee's 1928 painting 'Cat and Bird'. I used this lesson for my grade ones to reinforce using basic shapes to build up a drawing and had students use a step-by-step approach. I've seen this lesson on a few websites over the years. Rumriver Art Center also has a great resource for the step-by-step approach. I let my students paint their Cat and Bird in colours of their choice.
