      Dear Art Educators,

      Getty list members are looking for Kindergarten lessons. Post good lessons
      that you have done that include a bit of art history/art appreciation (or
      tie in childrens' literature, math or science).

      Here is a good one that Tammi (?) shared quite some time ago using the book
      Cat's Colors by Jane Cabrera:
      http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0803720904/102-0287640-8075300
      ?v=glance

      The first day, students collect samples of a chosen color from magazines
      (Tammi had them collect blue samples - but you could do other colors, too).
      They put their color samples in a baggie. Once they have enough colors
      selected, they glue them down to a sheet of 9 x12 paper. The next day, they
      finish gluing color samples - then they make a orange cat with black stripes
      to glue on top. Tammi found that it helped to teach them step by step how to
      draw a cat. An alternative idea would be to monoprint (finger paint) a
      background of a color -- or paint a color (maybe adding white to get some
      tints). Tammi - if you are reading - will you send me your Artsonia link
      again so I can grab an image?

      Post your favorites! I am compiling to link to Early Childhood lesson plans.
      It would be nice to have one picture to go with each idea (if possible).
