Grade One - Egyptian Cats

These are some pictures from teaching art with Wee Picasso’s grade one class. They are a fantastic group of children and it is a great way to get to know her classmates.

I showed them images of Egyptian art, showed them how much they loved their cats and would included them in their artwork. We talked about hieroglyphics as well - and gave each child a guide to use to write their name in hieroglyphics.

I encourage you to get involved with your child’s school. Go to the Home & School meeting, talk to their teacher, help out at lunchtime or in the library. The children will get to know you, you will get to know the staff. The benefits are huge.

I taught them how to draw a cat then went around and helped them with their hieroglyphics.

Then they used oil pastels to colour their artwork. We did a wash of blue tempura paint. The kids thought is was great.

Then for the final touches they decorated with buttons.

Looking forward to our next project. Any ideas for spring please share them!
