Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art Private Videoconference Program – See a Story: All About Eric Carle


Program Description:
After illustrating his first picture book, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, Eric Carle retired from advertising and devoted all his time to children’s picture books. He recalls, “I was set on fire! It was possible, after all, to do something special, something that would show a child the joy to be found in books.” Today Eric Carle is the renowned author and illustrator of more than 70 books, including the 1969 classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. In 2002, he and his late wife Barbara Carle founded The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Massachusetts, to celebrate children’s books from around the world.This program, which is led by educators at the Museum, introduces students to the art of Eric Carle and the museum that bears his name. Students will learn how his creative process works and take a closer look at picture books as an art form. Included in the presentation is an interactive story time and an exploration of the materials Carle uses when he creates his signature collages.
