Petting Zoo: News Cat Call for Art

IF ALL THIS TALK OF ART HAS YOUR CREATIVE JUICES FLOWING – YOU’LL WANT TO PAY EXTRA CLOSE ATTENTION TO THIS SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM THE HARDEST WORKING CAT IN SHOW BUSINESS. TAKE IT AWAY NEWSCAT.

IN ADDITION TO HER DUTIES AS THE PETTING ZOO CORRESPONDENT, NEWSCAT ALSO FANCIES HERSELF A BIT OF AN ART SNOB.

HER FAVORITE ARTISTS INCLUDE EXPRESSIONISTS LIKE VAN GOGH, GRACE G., AND AIDEN – ALONG WITH POP ARTISTS, LIKE WARHOL AND MR. SUMMERS FROM DODGE INTERMEDIATE.

NEWSCAT LOVES ART SO MUCH, IN FACT, THAT SHE WANTS TO INVITE YOU TO CREATE SOME! AND SHE’S HUMBLY OFFERING HERSELF AS YOUR MUSE – NO, NEWSCAT, NOT A MEOWS, A MUSE!

A MUSE IS A SOURCE OF INSPIRATION FOR AN ARTIST. IT COMES FROM GREEK MYTHOLOGY IN WHICH THE MUSES WERE NINE GODDESSES WHO SYMBOLIZED THE ARTS AND SCIENCES.

NEWSCAT HASN’T QUITE REACHED GODDESS STATUS, BUT SHE THINKS YOUR ART WILL MAKE HER FEEL LIKE ONE!

OK, ENOUGH FUNNY BUSINESS NOW, ARTCAT – YOU’VE STILL GOT A DAY JOB, AND WE NEED A PETTING ZOO STORY!

WITH ALL THIS COLD WEATHER WE’VE HAD LATELY NEWSCAT SAYS SHE’D LIKE TO TAKE A TRIP TO NEVADA.

AND, THERE, YOU’LL FIND SOME OF THESE DESSERT-DWELLING HUMPBACKS. LEARN HOW A GROUP OF CAMELS ARE HELPING VISITORS TOUR THE NEVADA DESSERT BY GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AND CLICKING THE PETTING ZOO BUTTON.

THANKS NEWSCAT. WOW – SHE’S AN ART LOVER, A JOURNALIST, AND, NOW A MUSE! TALK ABOUT A TRIPLE THREAT! NOW, WE’D LOVE TO SEE YOUR NEWSCAT-INSPIRED MASTERPIECES – SO IF YOU HAVE A LITTLE EXTRA TIME OVER HOLIDAY BREAK, GET TO WORK! YOU CAN SCAN OR TAKE A PICTURE OF THEM AND E-MAIL THEM TO US AT NEWSDEPTH@IDEASTREAM.ORG -- OR YOU CAN MAIL THEM IN TO NEWSDEPTH AT 1375 EUCLID AVE CLEVELAND, OH 44115. WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE WHAT YOU CREATE!

ONE OF NEWSCAT’S FAVORITE ARTISTS SHE SHOWED YOU IS MR. SUMMERS FROM DODGE INTERMEDIATE. WE LOVE GETTING LETTERS FROM MR. SUMMERS BECAUSE HE ALWAYS INCLUDES A LITTLE NEWSCAT-THEMED DOODLE ON THE ENVELOPE.
