Britto Inspired Cats and Dogs
First graders made cats and dogs inspired by the artist Romero Britto. We learned about Britto and looked at lots of his art. We did a guided drawing to make our cat or dog and then we added lots of patterns, focusing on variety and craftsmanship. We painted a background with watercolors. First we used painters tape to divide up our paper into smaller sections. Then, we watercolored each section. When the paint dried we pulled up the tape and added patterns with markers.
