April 22, 2017, Saturday - Celebrate Earth Day with Ellen Ferrari at MCBA

Time: 10:00am-Noon

Location: Minnesota Center for Book Arts, 1011 Washington Avenue South

Celebrate Earth Day with Ellen Ferrari 

Anne Rockwell’s Our Earth kicks off the celebration. Pull circle sheets of white cotton paper and color with ocean blue, land green and more. Decorate with recycled yarns, shredded papers and cut outs of people, plants and animals. Plant seeds in your paper, too! Waterproof shoes suggested.

Join Ellen Ferrari for Saturday mornings of family book arts fun. Each workshop starts off with a story and game to warm up your creativity and then dives into a book arts project. Workshops accommodate a range of developmental levels so that adults and children (or) adult/child teams may choose to work together or side-by-side. Each participant receives supplies to use during the workshop, but may choose to bring one set home if working with his or her partner. Ellen will provide older children with suggestions for extending their learning.

For families with children ages 2 and up. Adult/child pair: $32 ($29 members) + $6 supply fee; additional participants (adult or child): $16 ($14.50 members) + $3 supply fee.
