My senior year at UMass Amherst, I spent the spring interning at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. The work on offer is made up of gouache-painted paper which has been cut out and processed into a collage in the same colour patterns as his most famous character.

Born in Syracuse, New York, in 1929, Eric Carle moved with his parents to Germany when he was six years old; he was educated there, and graduated from the prestigious art school, the Akademie der bildenden Kunste, in Stuttgart. To that point, it is always important to ask kids questions, and to really give them the floor to speak.

With an extensive collection of more than 106,000 rare and unique volumes relating to the history of art, the Jean Outland Chrysler Art Library is one of the most significant art libraries in the South. For some retrospect, this book is up there in popularity with The Hobbit, The Catcher in the Rye, and dare I say, the Harry Potter series. This fascinating technique is one we thought worth exploring so let’s visit the Art Studio at Collingwood where our very own Miss Blake has created a series of short videos which explain the technique and makes it easy for you to enter the world of Eric Carle. After the contest, the winning banner was hung alongside other submissions in Massachusetts before being exhibited in Children's Museums across the United States and Japan for the next three years.
