Activity: Who is Your Cat Colleague?
- Grades: All Ages
- Subjects: Art Activities
Are you working from home with a cat? Do you wish you were working from home with a cat? At Carnegie Museum of Art, we work with Art Cat every day! Check out some of the feline friends in our collection for some inspiration.
See and Think:
- If you were to capture your real or imaginary cat’s personality in a work of art, what would it look like?
Do: Profile Your Cat Colleague
- Observe your cat colleague’s professional persona (or imagine one for your imaginary cat).
- Does your cat colleague have good communication skills?
- If your cat colleague were to send you an email, what would it say right meow?
- Do you and your cat colleague take lunch breaks together? What does your cat bring to share?
- What kind of office style does your cat sport? What is its signature look? Have a look at the cat images in these prints by Japanese artists. Design a colorful, patterned coat for your cat co-worker! Go a bit further and draw your colleague at work!
- Write a short story about your cat colleague in an email. Send it to one of your human colleagues as a pick-me-up!
