Laurel Burch gained much acclaim for her lively depictions of cats. One of the things I admire about this artist is her refusal to let her real life pain stop her from creating and living the life she wanted. Her work is extremely lively and almost child-like, which is probably why children enjoy it so much :)
She uses simple shapes and lots of colour and patterns in a way that is bound to make anyone looking at her art smile. The Doodlebugs drew and painted a cat imitating her style today. It's a great way for these little ones to think about their shapes and colours!
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
