Paste Paper Exploration with Bird Ross
Monroe Street Library, Saturday, May 6, 10:30-11:30am
Paste paper is a glorified finger-painting technique that has often been used to create end-papers in books. It's fun, simple and a great way to enjoy art making with your fingers! Good for all ages, the results can be sophisticated or very direct and simple. Children under the age of 6 should be accompanied by an adult. Bring your own thin cardboard to transform (cereal boxes, granola bar boxes, etc!). We will have some, but the more the merrier. All other art supplies will be provided. Children under 7 must have an adult helper.
Screenprinting Workshops

Magic little words
by Angèle Delaunois
Thank you. Sorry. Goodbye. I love you. These basic words and phrases are among the early ones we learn, but they also represent big concepts whose larger meanings can be difficult to grasp. Magic Little Words tackles the challenge, presenting one “little word” on each spread alongside a lyrical line that expresses its meaning: for instance, “please” is a magic key that opens most doors, and “I love you” is the most beautiful song for two.
