Making Art Together

Hitting the road for National Children's Book Week!

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. 

art studio to go

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.

stamping papers

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

cutting paper monotype prints

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. If you're interested in learning more about these programs and what else is on slate for children at Cary Memorial Library, click here. Also next week, Sarah visits kindergarteners in Enfield, CT, and Diana will be at Ashland Public Library. Click here to learn more about our outreach programs for students and check back later when we post about how everything goes this month!
