Eric Carle’s Dream Snow

First graders learned about collage and overlapping with Eric Carle’s book Dream Snow.

On the first day, we watched a short video and saw Eric Carle himself created his art papers. Then we made our own with our own colors and patterns. On the second day we used our art paper to create a collage to tell a story about what we like to do on snow days.

And then we overlapped our collages with a transparency and painted our own white blankets over the collages.

Watch for Josue’s amazing work (pictured above) in February at South West Wisconsin’s Youth Art Month show at Hilldale Mall!
