Making Art Together

Welcome to The Art Studio!

Welcome to Making Art Together, a blog from the Art Studio at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, educator, or artist, we hope the ideas shared here inspire you to create meaningful experiences with children and art.

Our Art Studio is a beautiful 1,500 square-foot space inspired by the ateliers of Pistoia, Italy. In the Studio, guests of all ages are invited to ignite their imaginations by experimenting with materials, discovering their own visual language, and exploring educational resources. With a commitment to education through art, our goal is to foster creative and intellectual development through hands-on experiences.

Learn more about our programs at our Art Studio page.
