Hitting the road for National Children’s Book Week!

Friday, May 4th, 2012

We’re in the thick of preparations for a busy month of programming on the road.  Next week we’re excited to celebrate National Children’s Book week at three different sites.  Thursday I’ll be at Cary Memorial Library in Lexington, MA.

My first program there, Art Studio-to-Go, is for ages  3-5 with a caregiver.  I’ll be sharing a picture book and helping young artists make shape collages.

I Am an Artist, for ages 5-8, is all about Eric Carle’s techniques and process.

My final program at Cary, Possibilities in Print for ages 9-12, delves into how picture books are produced and offers a change to make multiple color prints of one’s own.
