Exploring Prints with Children

November 6, 2018
1:30pm - 4:30pm
$40 (Members $34)

(3 PDPs) Explore printmaking processes and how to adapt it to your art-making space. In this workshop, you’ll walk away with a range of safe and accessible techniques that can be explored with students pre-K–12. We’ll deconstruct the printmaking process, allowing participants to explore the art form in an open-ended way. Enjoy the excitement as prints are revealed and layers of color come together to form a unique print. Techniques to be covered include monotype, collograph, stenciling, and stamping.

Exploring Diversity in Picture Books

November 6, 2018
9:30am - 12:30pm
$40 (Members $34)

This program is FULL. Email programs@carlemuseum.org to be added to the waitlist.

(3 PDPs) In this workshop we will examine how to use picture books to provide “mirrors and windows” that reflect readers’ identities and open their eyes to the world beyond their lived experiences. Participants will explore diversity in recent picture books, discussing ways to foster a child’s critical engagement with them, and learn tools for conducting diversity audits of one’s book collection. The session will also include exhibition tours of A Marriage of Artistry: Leo and Diane Dillon and Our Voice: Celebrating the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Awards.
