Collage Workshop for Children
We have a new virtual format for this class, which starts in January
Limit: 6 participants
Cost: Free Registration including 4 Free Eric Carle Books
Registration Deadline: January 1
This workshop series is designed to teach young children about collage making and books. Collage Workshop for Kids by Shannon Merenstein will be used as a starting point, with Eric Carle picture books being the focus of our four week workshop format. Basic concepts of paper use, color, texture, shape and line will be introduced in a fun and active literacy rich format. A weekly story, collage and sharing time will all be part of our new format with the main focus being to introduce art concepts and make collages with children ages 2-5.
Kits of art materials will be able to be picked up at GRACE’s Old Firehouse for participation which will include directions, materials and a copy of each of the Eric Carle books used for the lessons. Books include: “Head to Toe,” “Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See,” “Have You Seen My Cat?,” “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.” A short video (10-15 minutes) will be uploaded here with our instructor welcoming our participants, reading aloud the story of the week, and giving instructions for Lesson One. Families will have until the following Monday to complete the project, and then they will be able to log on to a zoom community with the instructor and all other participants from 10am-11am to share artwork and connect.
