Eric Carle Painted Paper

In this studio, we learned about two wonderful artists, Franz Marc and Eric Carle. Eric Carle, the author and illustrator of The Artist Who Painted the Blue Horse, which introduces how there are no “wrong colors” to children through creating various painted paper collages of an orange elephant, pink rabbit, and a red crocodile. Similarly, Franz Marc’s style is to paint stylistic animals using unrealistic colors as well. Franz Marc’s most famous work is Blue Horse. IMG_1205

Inspired, Little Artists create their own animal collage using Eric Carle’s painted paper technique.

First drawing their favorite animal on white paper and cutting out all the parts to use as a pattern on their hand-painted papers, which they painted using different texture techniques and shades of color.

Resulting in a beautiful collage of monochromatic colors layered into a beautiful animal.
