- We love to present the fun side of art history. Did you know Andy Warhol had 25 cats, all named Sam? Did you know Georgia O’Keeffe ate dirt? Did you know Beatrix Potter wrote her diary in secret code?
- We explain in detail the artistic techniques, processes and materials used to create masterpieces. We provide professional-grade art supplies for acrylic painting,watercolours, printmaking, clay sculpture and much more. We encourage respect for the tools of art, including proper use, cleaning and storage.
- Students hear the story of the featured artist and fun facts about their lives and legacies. They explore the art styles associated with the artist while learning about the style’s origins and impact on art and culture.
- Every 4Cats Kid gets an Artist Focus Expert Kit to take home. In addition to the amazing artwork they make, they’ll also love the kid-friendly storybook and trading card we include in the kit. Each trading card comes with a secret code that you can enter on the 4Cats website to watch an animated cartoon of the artist’s storybook!
