The Monart art program presented a family fun activity
on “How to
draw a Bali Cat
at theCheyenne Mountain library on November 20, 2010 based on the artwork of artist Laurel Burch.They taught the elements of shape: dot, circle, straight line, curved line, angled line. The setupincluded distributing to each artist a work mat along with a practice sheet of paper showingelements of the Bali Cat. Felt tip pens were distributed for drawing. After practicing with theelements of the Bali Cat, a white sheet of paper on which to draw was distributed.Next, each artist picked a landscape or portrait orientation. This affects the height and/or widthof the cat and what can be in the background.
Instructions were then as follows.
Note that at all points, artists were encouraged toindividualize their cats. There was not a right or wrong way to draw the cat. Below is a sampleBali cat, titled: The Chinchilla Cat.
