Have you ever made something fun out of clay? Our class made awesome clay cats in Art Lit. Our project was based on the Cat and Bird painting by artist Paul Klee. First, we had to squish the clay into a cat head shape and cut off some clay to make the ears. Next, we used this special glue called slip that we put on to make the ears stick to the head. Finally, we got to make the details of the cat face using knives and pencils. I made eyes, a nose, and whiskers. Then, it was time to paint! We used bright colors like Paul Klee did on his paintings. Clearly, this was a very, very fun project! I’m really glad we have parent volunteers help us do fun projects like this in Art Literacy.
