Word Travels

Eric Carle's exhibit at the Tacoma Art Museum served as the inspiration for students working on Word Travels, a residency designed by poet and storyteller Merna Hecht. A love of animales, a reoccuring theme in Eric Carle's work, provided the catalyst for the residency. Second and third graders at Bryant Elementary in Tacoma WA. created brightly colored collage animals and wrote poems that appeared on large pages of a collaboratively created book. The pages from the books where displayed in the education studio at the Tacoma Art Museum.
