A Stroke of Their Brush Illustrator Awareness Program Designed by: Alisha Evans University of Central Arkansas Summer 2011 LIBM 6371
A Stroke of Their Brush This program was incorporated into the summer school program at Clinton Schools, summer 2011. The program was designed to make students more aware of the illustrators of some of their favorite stories and the style of art that the illustrators use in their books.
A Stroke of Their Brush Target Audience: fifth and sixth grade students attending summer school. Location: Clinton Elementary School Library Funding for materials came from summer school funding. This program included three illustrators, who also wrote the books that were looked at. Eric Carle-Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother Too and From Head to Toe Mo Willems-Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus and Knuffle Bunny Robert Sabuda-Winter’s Tale and America the Beautiful
The Program Each of the three days of the program began with a book talk of a few of the books from that days author. An artist and art teacher from town then instructed and assisted the students in applying the technique of each of the authors to their own art work.
Eric Carle creates his illustrations from painted cut-outs he collages into a scene. The students planned their scene, selected paint colors, painted, and then cut out the scene and glued it onto their background paper. Eric Carle
For this program we used the method that Willems uses in the Knuffle Bunny books. In these books, simple drawings are added to a black and white photo background. The same simple drawings are also seen in the Pigeon books, except on a solid colored background. Old calendar pages were used as the background for these projects. Mo Willems
Robert Sabuda is well known for his amazing pop-ups. For this day of the program we printed outlines for some of his pop-ups from his website. The students then followed the directions on how to make each pop-up. Robert Sabuda
