Making Art Together

Reopening and a Collaborative Collage Mural

On August 1, The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art re-opened to visitors after a four-month temporary closure due to COVID-19.

Creative Comics

This week, we invite our At Home Art Studio community to explore art inspired by comics. Comics are a fun way to share stories. By creating a sequence of images and combining pictures and text, you can create characters, imagine new places or tell a story about yourself! READ MORE

Check out all the different ways the Art Studio team responded to this idea! READ MORE
