Eric Carle

During our ladybug unit I also read many other books by Eric Carle. We watched a video on how Mr. Carle makes his books and we spent two days making our own paintings. We used tissue paper and put a base color on and let it dry, next we put a second color on then we used different type of brushes to add the third color. After they were dry I put different pieces on every table and let the children cut and glue their own pictures.

We must've watched the same video today!! :) Ours was hooked to the end of a Smart Board lesson on The Very Hungry Caterpillar so I'm not exactly sure where it came from, though. I love your painting/collages. You inspired me...we may have to try it, too!
