Our monthly kids art program, Authors and Artists, returned for it’s May Edition at the Bushwick Library. We talked about ideas of color and pattern and read Elmer and Rose, by David McKee. The book celebrates the uniqueness of each individual as Elmer the Elephant meets a new girl elephant — who happens to be pink! These ideas of uniqueness were discussed and how this may be reflected in our own lives as we meet people of different color and uniqueness.
The children then translated these ideas into the creation of colorful and uniquely patterned pinwheels!
