I just did an Eric Carle project with at a school's library night. I
pre-painted some onionskin paper different colors (maybe you could have some
of your students do this step before the night). After reading an Eric Carle
book, to the group the children created Eric Carle collages. We used thinned
glue ( 1/2 glue and 1/2 water) that the kids painted onto the collage, to
glue it down.

Subject: help !! Ideas needed for Elementary Family Art Night , please !!

Since it is youth art month , I agreed to have a family art night st one of
my elementary schools. The PTO is very supportive and will help with some
I really need to pick your collective brains for ideas that my parents and
kids can do side by side. I was thinking of having different stations of
activities. A small one for this first attempt and then expand it to be a
yearly occurance each March.
I know some of you have spoken about doing this before, but since the
switchover of artsednet server, I can't get to the archives like I used to.
So let the ideas flow, and perhaps others besides myself will be inspired to
do this also at their schools.
Thanks in advance, Christine B. :)
PS--- if soneone will post the photo site also , I'd like to post some pics.
