Be My Valentine Painting

Valentine Kitty painting diagramThis Valentine painting was inspired by a simple stock art drawing.

I think it would make the beginning of a great story, given it’s a flying cat, holding a heart for someone. Lots of questions to be answered.

I highly recommend either printing the guide lines shown before hand, or having kids fold their paper to make four equal sections on the paper. It really helps kids judge their placement of lines when drawing.
