This lesson introduces the artist Laurel Burch to students while teaching them the difference between abstract art and realistic art. I've used this powerpoint presentation with grades K - 2 and have had great success when following it up with a guided drawing lesson of a basic cat. From there, students use what they learned from viewing Laurel Burch's cats to add interesting colors, shapes and designs. Please check out my other products to find the lesson plan and templates to accompany this powerpoint (will be posted soon). The finished projects were adorable and made for a fun and colorful bulletin board display! Enjoy!
