Cats of Many Colors
Mendez, Anissa C.
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v107 n8 p38-39 Apr 2008
One of the author's main goals as an art teacher is to make sure that her students understand at least one technique that any artist might use to make a work of art look more interesting. While she teaches various techniques, she often faces the challenge of how to get her students to explore their own imaginations and feel confident in their creative decisions. In this article, the author describes how her second grade students learned to create their own colorful cats using their imaginations.
