Today we read Eric Carle’s story Pancakes, Pancakes! We have always been a huge fan of his imagination and his technique of painting on tissue paper and using that as collage materials for his illustrations. We are also bug fans of the amazing Claes Oldenburg and his giant soft food sculptures.
These two master were perfect inspiration for making our own soft food sculptures.
You can watch the Story Time read aloud and project video at our collaborator page, Sea of Visibility, today on FB starting at 3pm .
