November 2, 2017, Thursday - Preschool Holiday Session: Book Ornaments / Ornament Books Workshop at MCBA

Time: 1:30–2:30pm

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

Preschool Holiday Session: Book Ornaments / Ornament Books

For families with children ages 3-5

Get a jump on literacy in interactive pre-school book arts classes with Ellen Ferrari. Children and adults work together to make paper, print patterns, shapes and letters and construct colorful books in a fun environment. Each class begins by reading a story and continues by investigating examples produced by working artists. Vocabulary, tools and processes will also be introduced. These workshops emphasize visual decision-making, improving manual dexterity and a love of books and can be repeated over and over again as projects change each session. Dress for mess.
