Collage Workshop at MVPL

Have you ever looked up in the sky and seen a cloud that looked like an animal, or an object, or a person's face? I have. In Eric Carle's Little Cloud a small cloud transforms itself into different things such as a sheep, an airplane, trees, and a hat. This book was the inspiration for cloud collages that the children at the Mount Vernon Public Library created using their memories or imagination. Some clouds came off the page (crumpled paper), others were colorful, and one collage was made up of soothing organic shapes that reminded the artist of the ocean. This collage workshop is funded by a generous grant from ArtsWestchester.
