Owl City Craft Workshop presented by the Eric Carle Museum

Tuesday, January 22, 2019

4:00 PM- 5:00 PM

Kids of all ages are invited to join art educators from the Eric Carle Museum and librarians from the Jones Kids Room to build an owl city. Drop in to help created a 3 dimensional landscape inspired by Aaron Becker's artwork celebrating the Samuel Minot Jones Award for Literary Achievement. Our buildings and art work will use recycled and found materials. Creations will be on display in the Jones Library windows. 

The 2019 Samuel Minot Jones Award for local literary achievement will be presented to Richard Michelson, and the award for significant contribution to Amherst’s literary culture will be presented to The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art.
