The first workshop of the day was I Am an Artist. We discussed Eric Carle’s illustration process, created unique papers echoing Eric’s signature style and then created colorful collages with the papers (ages 5-7).
In the second workshop, Bookmaking Basics we practiced folding, gluing and binding different styles of books to hold our words and pictures (ages 8-10).
The last workshop of the day, Thinking with Found Materials we read a story with inspiring illustrations and created assemblages using an array of colorful found materials (ages 3-4 with caregiver).
It’s always fun to bring The Carle Museum experience to children and adults who may have never been to our Museum.
Thanks for having us Darien Library!
