Today we throw a birthday party for Nio and Mr. Hamburger. I am asked to give an art lesson to the children. While we are still eating lunch, Nio is too eager to start the workshop.
Being a loyal fan of Mr. Bernard Waber, I choose his book The House on East 88th Street as the major theme. It really pleases me to introduce the lovely Lyle to as many children as I can.
I prepare the pictures for the children in advance so that they can directly get to do the coloring. However, this time I request everyone to choose as many as ten colors. The media include crayons, collage and inks.
For those kids who are not into coloring really detailed parts, they can turn to collage and inks for creating the color block effect.
But some kids impress me with their patience. They take their time to finish the pictures.
After the kids are done with drawing, they can come by to hear the story of Lyle. I have repeated it for 4 times today. Great thanks to Mr. Waber!
There are only three colors in the book, red, yellow and green. See how the kids recreate the whole story with their own color combinations!
