Picture This!

 Monday, March 30, 2009, 3 - 7 pmExplore the expressive power of line, shape, color, space, and composition with Rosemary Agoglia, Director of Education at The Eric Carle Museum. The program demonstrates the core visual literacy principles from Molly Bang’s book, Picture This: How Pictures Work.

Participants will practice their skills in “reading pictures” using the KMA exhibitions Roy Lichtenstein: In Process and Jules Feiffer: Picture Books. These artists employ a bold comic style, using dots, lines, color, and dramatic composition, to communicate ideas and comment on contemporary life and culture. Teachers will come away with learning strategies and activities that support the learning standards in art, language arts, social studies, and balanced-literacy classrooms.

"These simple shapes, animated by Molly Bang, do more than tell a story: they offer an order, a kind of grammar for the eyes, a recipe for yet further things to say. Therefore, they also teach"
Rudolf Arnheim
