Educator Workshop:
Creative Collage and The Art of Pop-up Books: Building Literacy Skills in Emerging Readers

Educator Workshop - K-12 Programs
 

Art engages children of all ages, helping them become active, curious readers and inspired writers. In this two-part workshop, teachers will delve into their creativity to explore techniques in collage illustration and three-dimensional paper construction to illustrate any story.

Part 1: Creative Collage Illustration
Part 2: Paper Engineering, the Art of Pop-up books

Inspired by the drawings of children’s book author Eric Carle and the artwork of Romare Bearden, educators will explore hands-on techniques to create colorful, vibrant, 3-D images to be used in their own books.

Attendance at both sessions is encouraged.

This workshop is recommended for Reading Specialist, Elementary, English Language Learners, Special Education, and Arts Specialty teachers.

Workshop supports the Michigan Reading, Language, and Writing Standards for K-5.

This workshop was developed in association with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and is partially underwritten by the U.S.Department of Education and the National Committee for the Performing Arts.
