Studio Workshop: Eric Carle Inspired Collage presented by Turnip Green Creative Reuse
Please note, this event has expired.
Join Turnip Green Creative Reuse for a collage workshop inspired by Eric Carle’s illustrations. Learn about Carle’s process on a tour of the exhibition Eric Carle’s Picture Books: Celebrating 50 Years of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.” Then join TGCR teaching artists to make your own nature-inspired collage. Practice some of Carle’s painting and collaging techniques by reusing tissue paper and other found objects to depict your own land-, sea-, and skyscapes.
Turnip Green Creative Reuse is a pay-what-you-wish retail store and green gallery that offers educational resources and artist support. Its mission is to foster creativity and sustainability through reuse, keeping valuable materials out of our landfill and getting them back to artists, teachers, students, and anyone else interested in minimizing waste and maximizing inspiration.
