Making Art Together

And The Winners Are...

We are very proud to announce the three winners for our Call For Caterpillars Contest!  We chose three random winners from over 100 entries and here they are:

Hannah Reed Coates from Belchertown High School

Hannah's art teacher,  Lori St. Pierre, sent in this entry along with a number of amazing pictures from many of the high school art students.



David Whelan from Worcester, MA

David made his caterpillar at the Worcester Public Library where Librarian Dorrie Karlin organized a special craft for our contest.


Nadia Santiago from Springfield, MA

Nadia made her caterpillar at Sixteen Acres Branch Library in Springfield, MA.  Many thanks to Doris Madsen for sending in a variety of creative caterpillars from the library.


Our three winners will be receiving their very own Eric Carle doodle and we are pleased to also mail a doodle to each of the schools and libraries that sent in the winning entries.  Those six doodles will be mailed out soon!  We want to thank all of the participants for a fabulous caterpillar contest. We received so many creative photos and we are working hard to organize them and showcase the caterpillars at The Carle.  If you sent in a photo we will be displaying them very soon so that everyone will get to see all the creative uses of found materials that the artists came up for their caterpillars.  Check back later on our blog for more information about when we have the caterpillars on display.
