With an extensive collection of more than 106,000 rare and unique volumes relating to the history of art, the Jean Outland Chrysler Library is one of the most significant art libraries in the South. His best-known work, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, has been translated into 70 languages and sold over 55 million copies.

To achieve this, arrange the desks in groups of 4 or 5 room set up (1) covered with small sheets of newspaper or soft plastic tablecloths. org) in Amherst, Massachusetts, a 40,000-square-foot space dedicated to the celebration of picture books and picture book illustrations from around the world, underscoring the cultural, historical, and artistic significance of picture books and their art form. Or I put paint on a piece of carpet, sponge, or burlap and then use that like a stamp on my tissue papers to create different textures. This year in the classroom they were looking more at chemical change, so I decided to do colour mixing activities- primary colour mixing to make secondary colours.I demonstrated how they could glue down their ovals- we talked about arranging and overlapping- once again referring to Carle’s caterpillar.

Eric Carle was far more than an author and illustrator of children's books, as I came to appreciate by making this purchase.Once the textures have been scratched, students can add more patterns/colours using the small paint brush, sticks, cotton buds etc. We celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stories, traditions and living cultures; and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. I taped the leaf with the caterpillar onto the shorter piece of wire and simply wound the other taller wire around the butterfly body. To that point, it is always important to ask kids questions, and to really give them the floor to speak. In 2009, Putnam/ Philomel published Artist To Artist: 23 Major Illustrators Talk to Children about Their Art, with contributors including Mitsumasa Anno, Quentin Blake, Carle, Tomie dePaola, Leo Lionni, Barry Moser, Robert Sabuda, Maurice Sendak and Rosemary Wells.

Preps have been learning about ‘diversity’ and that differences should not only be respected but celebrated!Carle's tools were fairly simple: acrylic paint, white tissue paper, a sponge or something else to make a little texture, tracing paper, and an X-Acto knife. This project gives the students the opportunity to prepare their own papers, engaging in painting and decorating paper, cutting, gluing and creating an image involving shapes. Let’s say I want to create a caterpillar: I cut out a circle for the head from a red tissue paper and many ovals for the body from green tissue papers; and then I paste them with wallpaper glue onto an illustration board to make the picture. Regardless of the grade level or project, the final art pairs well with display companies that print on products such as Artsonia .
