FK813MW: Homage to Eric Carle Ages 5 – 6 years

  • Workshop is cancelled

  • Guardians must sign in and sign out students.
  • Masks are required for all youth programs – social distancing will be practiced to all extents possible.
  • FTAS asks that unvaccinated adults please wear a mask when inside the school.


Join us to create a collage inspired by the work of beloved children’s book author/illustrator Eric Carle. The morning will begin with a reading of the Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. Children will then create their own “hungry caterpillars” or “butterflies”, illustrating the idea of metamorphosis using a variety of collage materials.

The Dr. Edward Spaulding Perzel Children’s Art Program sponsors this workshop.

Workshop Teacher

Marilyn Wooten, a retired educator, taught art from preschool through sixth grade for Ashe County Schools.  The classes she taught focused on art through the multiple intelligences. Children as well as adults learn in different ways; multiple intelligences help students discover their strengths. Marilyn studied art at App. State and N.C. Central where she received certification in art education.  She is inspired by children and their art and enjoys working with pencil and watercolor.
