It’s that time of year again! We’ve been busy in The Studio cutting construction paper, sorting scissors and glue sticks, and packing up paints in preparation for the numerous Art Studio programs scheduled throughout New England (and beyond!) this Spring.
Our most popular Studio outreach program is I Am an Artist, where students learn about Eric Carle’s artistic process and get to stamp their own set of Eric Carle inspired papers to then use in a collage. The folks at The Learning Community Charter School in Central Falls, Rhode Island put together a Vimeo slideshow of my visit from last spring. You can view the slideshow in Meghan’s post here .
Tomorrow and Tuesday we’re off to Florence Roche Elementary in Groton, MA to work with their six kindergarten classes and four first grade classes to make Eric Carle inspired collages.
On Thursday I’ll be at The Dummerston School in Vermont to make books with one of the kindergarten classes for the program Bookmaking Basics.
For more information on how to book a program for your school, visit our Student Outreach Programs page. Hopefully next week I’ll have some fun photos to share from my travels!
