ART AND STORY Grades 2-3

 Children’s books are a wonderful way to open our imagination to think and draw creatively. Anything is possible in a story! During this 3 class camp, we will use children’s stories and their illustrations as our inspiration for our own art making. At the beginning of each class we will read a story. Then, using a variety of art materials and basic drawing techniques, we will bring to life our own illustrations. During this week, we will read The Pencil and then draw a personified object, If You Give a Cat a Cupcake to make collage and mixed media art, and Insectlopedia to create watercolor insect paintings.
