Laurel Burch Cats

1-3 grade students created these Laurel Burch inspired watercolor cats. I demonstrated step-by-step how to draw the body of a cat with simple lines and shapes. Students then outlined with crayons and added a simple shape design to the background. I gave students the option of adding spots or stripes to the cats, as well as if they wanted a natural and realistic cat or bright and colorful. Students then used liquid watercolors to paint in the cats and backgrounds. This project is very simple and yields amazing results for all students!
