Kate Mawdsley, artist, is the inspiration for this project. Her animal paintings are so simple and colorful. This is a good project to get the kids to draw large; to fill the paper. I cut paper so it measured 4 ½” x 12″ to reproduce the proportions of Kate’s art. I searched Kate Mawdsley on Google images and made a copy of her animal prints for the kids to reference. The kids loved this project and you can see what great results were achieved. To learn more about Kate Mawdsley , go to https://www.kingandmcgaw.com/prints/kate-mawdsley.
