Honouring Eric Carle's Life of Illustrating Picture Books

AUGUST 23 TO 27

9:00 AM TO 12:00 PM

Where other artists used paint, Carle used paper. Where other artists used a paintbrush, he used scissors. We plan to read as many of his books as we possibly can and to explore his art medium in depth.

We will create beautiful paper using combs and splatter, as well as incorporating sand and natural materials into our paint. Then we will grab some scissors and collage our hearts out. By the end of the week, each student will have created a miniature gallery of art to take home, honouring the canon of children's literature Eric Carle has left as his legacy.
