The Very Hungry Caterpillar, written and illustrated by Eric Carle was a wonderful source of inspiration for the Pre-Primary artists. After reading the story and many other colourful illustrated tales by Eric Carle, the boys had the opportunity to create their own collage caterpillars. Working in the lively style of Carle, they each created their own painted papers to use within their collaged artworks.
Inspired by the famous storybook, we are currently writing and creating our own charming tale entitled 'The Very Clumsy Chicken'. Each boy added a line to the collaborative chicken story. The boys will illustrate their page by using the familiar collage style of Eric Carle. The final images will be created into a storybook, one for each boy to treasure as a special memento of their Pre-Primary creative journey.
