This month: Eric Carle Inspired

Our author of the month is Eric Carle. We are currently painting in Eric Carle style, which includes water-based paint to create streaks, patterns, layering, polka dots, etc.

Here is a video about Eric Carle and his famous book “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”. At 2:00 mins you will see him showcasing his unique painting style.

We studied Carle’s illustration techniques in our classroom and with the help of local illustrator and parent Michael Connor we began painting like Eric Carle does. Look –  no pen/pencil lines.  So much fun!


Wonderfully painted in Eric Carle style, little CNS artists!
