Animals in the Arts: Shapes & Forms

December 27, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

A watercolor painting of a purple cat with yellow eyes.

This program is for students in grades 2-8.

Students will learn that to draw dogs, cats, and other animals, they must first break them down into basic gestures and shapes. In looking at basic body structure and anatomy, students will have a better understanding of what makes animal’s bodies unique, and then be able to take that knowledge to the drawing board. In this session, kids will:

โ—‹ Learn the basic shapes and forms that make up the body of a dog or cat
โ—‹ Explore the outlines, structure, and skeleton of the animal they’re drawing
โ—‹ Sketch their animal using these basic shapes
โ—‹ Paint their animal using watercolor, focusing on the wet-on-wet technique

All supplies are provided and students will be able to take their artwork home!

Although they can be somewhat timid and cautious, when a rabbit is feeling confident they tend to go exploring! Rabbits love to look down tunnels, dig under blankets, pull up rugs, and fit into smaller spaces. All in the name of curiosity! Rabbits are also crepuscular, which means they're most active at dawn and dusk. So, if you have a sleepy rabbit during the day, that just means they'll need more time to explore their home during the early morning or evening! 

Cauliflower, one of our newest residents who is ready to find his happy home, is one curious guy! He loves to rearrange his living space and he never shies away from an adventure. He will fill your home with so much love and lughter!

We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than by sharing a Happy Homes story for you! We feel honored to play a part in matching pets to their perfect people. 

"I just wanted to reach out with an update on Fitz! He has had an AMAZING two weeks in his new home meeting his new family and (after a very long and slow introduction process) playing with his brother!

Fitz is an amazing kitten! He is super sweet, playful, cuddly, and vocal! We knew the second he came home and started excitedly exploring his space that he was the right fit for our family! He and his brother Poe are now inseparable. He is growing so fast, playing so much, and we now know heโ€™s very healthy!

Thank you SO very much for matching me with this perfect boy! I came in to adopt him a couple months after the loss of my former kitty that was also given to me from your shelter 16 years ago. I truly believe he sent Fitz my way!"

Continue the love by sharing your own Happy Homes story so we can see how much you love your pet!
