Art In A Suitcase

Younger Children - Little Cats

This suitcase celebrates the domestic cat. Beginning with the cat in history, the children learn that the Egyptians made mummy cases and mouse mummies for cat burials. Scientific facts are next. For example, the cat can make 16 different sounds and has 244 bones in its body. Then the cats are let out of the bag, and they represent a grand variety of artwork from many countries.

The hour concludes with legends, poems and, of course, drawing cats!

Ages kindergarten and up.
