I have been MIA for a while, huh? Nevermind, here’s some cats!

We followed the instructions from Art Projects for Kids to make cats in the style of Brazilian artist Romero Britto. We all followed the same instructions and I love how we still ended up with three very different cats.

Here’s my scary cat:

britto cat - viv

Rafe’s worried cat:

britto cat - rafe

And Mark’s cute cat:

britto cat - mark

If you fancy having a go at making your own Britto-style cats the instructions are here.

Blue Bob and Other Feline Adventures

Ahead of a family trip to the Tate Modern next month, we thought we would make a start on a Pop Art project. We have borrowed books on the library about Andy Warhol and other pop artists, and have scoured the interwebs for project ideas. First up, colourful cats in the style of Red Sam by Andy Warhol. We started out with instructions from Art Projects for Kids, but of course the boys ended up putting their own unique twist on the theme! Here are Waif’s cats:

Blue Bob

And Gman’s:

cat 1
cat 2
cat 3

And if you thought Mama wouldn’t be able to resist joining in, you’d be right. But I only made one, cos someone has to make the dinner, right?
