SCAT THE CAT


FullSizeRender.jpg

Once there was a little black cat. (Hold up the file folder showing the black cat.) He was a magic cat because he could change his colors ~ (snap fingers) ~ just like that. All he had to say was:

CHORUS: I’m Scat the Cat. I’m sassy and fat.
And I can change my colors ~ (snap)
~ just like that!

One day Scat decided he was tired of being black. He wanted to be a new color so he said: CHORUS. (Remove the black sheet of paper to make the cat blue.) And he changed blue! Scat went down to the pond to look at himself in the water. Unfortunately, he fell in, and he couldn’t swim. Timmy Turtle came along and helped Scat get back on shore.

Scat decided he didn’t want to be blue any more, so he said: CHORUS. (Remove the blue sheet of paper to make the cat red.) And he changed red. He went walking down the street, and everybody started laughing at him. “Whoever heard of a red cat!” they said.

Scat decided he didn’t want to be red any more, so he said: CHORUS. (Remove the red sheet of paper to make the cat yellow.) And he changed yellow. Scat went walking in the woods, and who did he run into but his cousin Leo the lion. “Grrrrrr!” roared Leo. “I’m the only cat who can be yellow.”

Scat decided he better not be yellow any more, and he quickly said: CHORUS. (Remove the yellow sheet of paper to make the cat green.) Scat wanted to play with his brothers and sisters in the grass. He tried to play with them, but he was green like the grass, and they couldn’t see him.

Scat decided he didn’t want to be blue, or red, or yellow, or green, so he said: CHORUS. (Remove the green sheet of paper to make the cat black.) Scat knew that being himself was the best thing to be. And do you know what? Being yourself is the best thing you can be, too. Because there’s nobody else exactly like you. And I like you just the way you are!

Week of February 16th-22nd:

Paul Kleek Portraits

WEEK of January 25th:

Images of Space Objects

Falling back in Space Portraits!

1. Start with a LARGE sheet of paper...18x24 is what we used
2. Have students trace hands facing outward, towards the top of the paper. A friend may help.
3. Put papers on the ground, and have students trace their feet facing outward slightly towards the bottom of the paper. they LOVE this part!
4. Have students draw an oval/circle for the head slightly above the hands (in the middle)...add details to the face, hair, etc...to make it look like them
5. Then, add a neck, show them how to attach the arms to the hands, and the pants to the feet. The arms and legs get larger as they get closer to the tracings of hands and feet. Draw details, details, details!
6. Discuss how they are 'flying back in space' and WHERE ARE THEY?! I have students drawing outer space, under the ocean, in a lightening storm, in tornadoes, etc....
7. Outline in sharpies
8. Paint with watercolors (we added crayon detail for small things as a wax-resist)

breakdown of my Nutcracker drawing project, this time using oil pastels on black construction paper.
My large construction paper comes in 18″ x 24″ size, so I cut long narrow panels of 8″ x 24″ for each student. Each also got a cardboard template measuring 7″ x 4″.1. Following the steps shown in my diagram, the students first placed the rectangle in the middle of the black paper, and traced it with a pencil.2. Two vertical lines are drawn up from the top of the rectangle, and one horizontal to divide that shape in half.3. The bottom of that rectangle is the face, and eyes, mouth, moustache, beard and hair are added.4. Half-circles are drawn for shoulder pads, arms and hands go below.5. Two legs are added under the body, with half-circle feet for boots.6. Uniform details are drawn on the body, along with a belt.7. I had my students then trace all the pencil lines with a black pastel, and then color the body in with lots of red, black, white, and a little skin color.California Visual Arts Standard: Creative Expression 2.02.6 Use geometric shapes/forms (circle, triangle, square) in a work of art.

HAROLD AND THE PURPLE CRAYON

FYI...I like to play a game called "my turn - your turn" with the young classes where they watch what I do when I say "my turn" and they do what I just demonstrated when I say "your turn". You may choose to use the document camera or one of the easels. Open the doc camera on the computer - it is the top left icon. A classroom teacher can help you with that.

Using the "Line" cards from the memory game, post one at a time as you ask them to draw each type of line. Each line you ask the students to draw the line with both a traditional grip and an overhand grip. Change colors of chalk in between lines or at least give that choice. Also, kindergarteners like to do their art room standing up so that should also be a choice.

LESSON OBJECTIVES:

  • Compose a study of a variety of different lines using both the traditional grip on an art tool and an overhand grip

MATERIALS: Paper is by large paper cutter or in back of room. Other drawing and coloring materials are in back of room.

Long strip of white art paper, red basket of colored chalk on each table, set of line matching cards.
