Folk Art Cat Drawing

A drawing of a folk art cat, made with the help of an easy step by step tutorial.

This Folk Art cat is fun to draw because it takes no special skill and the shapes are all super basic. Save him or her for a lesson about folk art, or Halloween, or both. It’s always nice when a project can do double duty.

Folk artists often use simple techniques, bright colors, and childlike images so they can make art as a means of self-expression rather than something that is “real”. It’s all about drawing just for the fun of it, which is a great message to share with students, as often as you can.

Materials to draw a Folk Art Cat

  • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
  • Pencils. I like how this brand always makes nice dark lines.
  • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a dark black color.
  • Crayons. The larger packs are nice for more color choices.
  • Note: All of the above are Amazon affiliate links.
