Engaging one day projects week! Andy Warhol Part II. Uncle Andy's Cats. Red Sam and free download.
There are two books written by James Warhola that are fantastic for the art room. "Uncle Andy's" and "Uncle Andy's Cats" are both fun first account stories written by Andy Warhol's nephew.
After reading "Uncle Andy's Cats," We look at and discuss Warhol's picture "Red Sam." I found a worksheet on artprojectsforkids.org that shows the students step-by-step how to draw the cat. I pass out the red sam worksheet and students draw their own large version. Finally, students add their own touches to their red sam, we trace, color, cut out, and mount to a piece of construction paper.
