Illustration style: Eric Carle's style is very unique and creative! His artwork is created by using a collage technique, cutting out many pieces of paper and gluing them onto the paper. By overlapping paper he is able to create a picture full of different colors and textures. He also uses watercolors to add another fun element. His artwork is very organic and focuses on nature and animals.
Activity: Gather magazines and scrape paper and let your child have fun making their own collage. This is a great way to develop fine motor skills as a child cuts, tears, and glues paper. If you child is older, help them make a storyboard and write their own story.
