Making yum-yum-bugs and reading at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art…
Bob loves yum-yum-bugs!
He likes to eat them.
I prefer to make them.
I have bugs hanging in my studio that I made out of painted paper clay and wire
Today, I was thinking about my upcoming visit to the Eric Carle Museum…
I will be helping young artists draw their own silly yum-yum-bugs…
This evening I started playing in my studio and oops…
…Silly bugs flew out of my pen!
These bug drawings are done in pen and ink and watercolor.
On SUNDAY, JULY 1st…
At 1:00 I will be in the Art Studio helping kids with their bugs as they draw and make them wiggle and jiggle from a mobile.
At 2:00 I will be reading BOB…along with some of my other books at the story time.
Save time to see the museum.
They have 3 terrific shows right now:
SNOWY DAY and the Art of Ezra Jack Keats
OUR BRITISH COUSINS: The Magical Art of Maisy and Friends
THE ART OF ERIC CARLE: The Birth of a Book and a Museum (art from “Slowly, Slowly, Slowly,” said the Sloth…a book I bought for my son when he was 18 years old…you are never to old for picture books!)
Hear a story…make a bug…I hope to see you there……tcp
