About this deal

We watched an animated version of the story on Youtube, and I also had a copy of the book to look carefully at the pictures. Since the Caterpillar was published in 1969, Eric Carle has illustrated more than 70 books, many best sellers, most of which he also wrote. Designed for classroom teachers, librarians, art teachers, and others interested in engaging students in the visual arts and the art of the book, the Museum's professional development programs emphasize teaching through the arts and encourage critical and creative thinking. So often they are told no, or given a pacifier ( figuratively or literally) by adults in their lives. Students followed a directed drawing of a chameleon on a piece of A4 paper, and made a ‘foil print’ with markers on the reverse: Colour with markers on aluminium foil, fine spray of water, take a print!

personalized "For Anne Brook With Love" signed "Eric Carle", a children's book author and illustrator was best known for "The Very Hungry Caterpillar".

One set of 2 litres of the colours mentioned in the art materials section on page one, will last for a year. Eric Carle Eric Carle is the author and illustrator of over seventy picture books for young children.

When the paper has dried separate the painted paper from the newspaper, insert a flat hand between the two pieces of paper and gently separate them. In contrast to the pain of publishing, he spoke of the meditative quality of glueing and painting his papers: “It’s like being in an alpha state: total peace. Our projects rotated from Day and Night pastel drawings, Build Your Own Environment using found objects (recycled items donated to the museum by guests – they had tons! He had been encouraged in his natural artistic creativity by a kindergarten teacher in Syracuse, but Carle struggled with the more restrictive schools in Germany.Besides being beautiful and entertaining, his books always offer the child the opportunity to learn something about the world around them. I recently read his book, The Art of Eric Carle, and discovered he was a man influenced heavily by family and community. Asked in later years why he had the caterpillar build a cocoon rather than a chrysalis, Carle explained that his father had encouraged him as a child to "come out of your cocoon". In theory, I could have walked in the back room and grabbed a bin full of colorful straws for him to choose from.

More than 60 of his full-color collage pictures are handsomely reproduced and serve as a statement of Carle's impressive talent.Students can choose their own theme or everybody can work on the same idea as suggested by the teacher, like the circus for example. His 1992 cat, constructed with vivid hand-painted tissue papers, has richer color variations and a more active pose. Students cut out yellow eyes, purple antennae and green circles for on top of eyes and a small triangle nose. The Carle was founded in 2002 by Eric and Barbara Carle, and designed by Juster Pope Frazier Architects.

Amanda Hilburn is an artist who works primarily in acrylics, but also enjoys mixed media and watercolors inspired by the simple, stunning, artistry of nature; animals, flowers, water and more. We discussed how they think Eric Carle made the pictures- someone did eventually proffer that he painted paper and then cut and pasted it. It’s not necessarily a parent or guardian’s fault, but if parents or other adults take the time to listen to what children have to say, whether they are doing an art project or talking about their day at school, they are exercising one of the fundamental forms of communication, which is storytelling. After Eric Carle’s recent passing, I’ve done a lot of reflecting on how a humble man from upstate New York, who spent time cutting pieces of tissue paper and writing children’s stories for a living, became one of the world’s largest influencers. His graphic design skills and his great affection for bold colors made his work in this period stand out.

While his collage technique was fairly simple, Carle's art consistently conveys both a sense of wonder and real delight in his subjects and characters. A colorful collage of a favorite character by Carle, featured in his beloved feline classic Have You Seen My Cat? He wanted to make a curvy striped tree trunk and he thought that one specific straw was the only material he could use to accomplish this. Essays and critical appreciations of his works, and color photographs showing how the artist creates his unique collage illustrations add to the interest and usefulness of this book.
