About this deal

When working with very young children, it will be fine for them to paint less sheets and also, they will tend to paint different colours on the same paper. We looked at Eric Carle’s caterpillar and decided that the shape needed for the body parts was an oval.

Author and illustrator Eric Carle spent almost half a century creating art and writing and illustrating books for children.And I think that Eric Carle was a person who listened to children and influenced them to tell stories of their own. Discover tools and techniques to engage middle and high school students in art-making as they learn about science, math, engineering, and technology through children's books. So often they are told no, or given a pacifier ( figuratively or literally) by adults in their lives.

Collage art is created by cutting different pieces of paper into different shapes and creating a picture out of it. Signed and inscribed "For Betsy Pinover with Best Wishes / Eric Carle" in pencil, upper margin; additionally signed and dated by Carle on verso. They painted their entire paper with one warm colour then add texture by scraping a texture comb through the wet paint, then used texture wands to dab or roll another warm colour over the paper. Y., and his childhood in wartime Germany, this autobiography gives readers a glimpse at what shaped the artist's life, including essays on his work by his editors, a speech for the Library of Congress, and more than sixty full-color illustrations. we folded the paper in half so they would cut two out at a time) They traced a slightly bigger head on the red paper and used the yellow to cut circles for eyes, the purple for antennae.

Eric Carle is acclaimed and beloved as the creator of brilliantly illustrated and innovatively designed picture books for very young children. It’s like the children’s game of looking at a cloud and seeing an image, say, of a sheep, in the shape of the cloud. His picture book The Very Hungry Caterpillar, first published in 1969, has been translated into more than 66 languages and sold more than 50 million copies. It is his concern for children, for their feelings and their inquisitiveness, for their creativity and their intellectual growth that, in addition to his beautiful artwork, makes the reading of his books such a stimulating and lasting experience. Discuss the idea of illustration with older students, in a simple way, how to combine words and pictures.

Besides being beautiful and entertaining, his books always offer the child the opportunity to learn something about the world around them. Featuring strawberries, pears, plums, and even a lollipop, the book's gentle words are accompanied by bursts of color in Carle's signature collages. Show a picture of the artist, read one of his books and briefly talk about his life and his art work. He painted tissue paper and cut it into shapes for a living, and inspired an entire world by doing so.

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". 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. This project gives the students the opportunity to prepare their own papers, engaging in painting and decorating, cutting , gluing and creating an image involving shapes.
