Based on these familiar books, children explore collage techniques to create colourful fish, very hungry caterpillars and beautiful butterflies. Reading of the stories and number of activities will depend on the children’s age and class size. Required: A parent volunteer or teacher who will cut out the butterfly wings and attach body when dry.


What People are Saying about Rainbow Fish and Very Hungry Caterpillar

“A well organized, creative in class workshop.” – teacher from St. Albert Creative Pre-school


 Class Preparation

Please cover desks and tables with paper before the instructor arrives. Kraft paper is best for clay and messy workshops. A large central table is needed for some workshops, such as Decorative Eggs, Inuit Inspired Printmaking, and Linoleum Printing. Access to water is essential for cleanup whether it be a sink in the classroom, bathrooms, or a large bucket filled with water. Remember to wear nametags and remember to dress for art!

Visual arts workshops enhance school curricula in social studies, language arts, science, religion and math, as well as art. Professional artist facilitators encourage students to express themselves visually. Hands on workshops offer students unique opportunities to explore a variety of materials, equipment and techniques not often available in regular school programs.

Inspirational artist-led demonstrations provide technical instruction and guidance. An art history perspective enriches programs where applicable. The highest priority is to stimulate each student’s imagination and creativity.
