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.
