    Welcome to Mr. Herzog's Second Grade Online Lessons:


      Drawing Cool Cat:

    Cats have very strong personalities. What if your cat wanted to go out and get a job? Like "Puss-N-Boots"? What career would they choose? Police Officer? Nurse? Construction Worker? Teacher? Doctor? Decide what your Cool Cat would wear to do their job.


    Before we start let's watch a couple of videos about drawing simple cats. You do not have to watch all of these videos, you may pick and choose what you would like to check out:

    Jobs and Careers for Kids

    (look at what kind of clothes the people in a career are wearing)




    Please read through instructions before you begin:

    • Use a 8 1/2" x 11" white piece of paper (any paper will do).
    • Hold the paper vertically.
    • Optional:  Fold the paper in half, if you would like to draw 2 cool cats.
    • You may draw any of the cats found on these videos or you may create one of your own, you decide.

    Creating Your Own "Cool Cat":

    • EXAMPLES: "Cats With A Career"
    • Doctors
    • Nurses
    • Astronauts
    • Teachers
    • Football Players
    • Scientists
    • Lawyers
    • Construction Workers
    • Police Officers


    • Carefully draw your cat in the center of the paper. (See examples)
    • Draw your "Cool Cat" large enough so that your hand can not cover it.
    • Think about the details you would like to include in your drawing to show what kind of job they have (clothing, tools, etc).
    • Once you are done drawing your "Cool Cat", color your character in completely as well as the background. 
    • You may use any colors you would like.
    • You may color your "Cool Cat" in crayon, magic markers, water color, or color pencils (whatever supplies you have at home).
    • Use bright colors to color in the background.
