Art Through Stories

ART THROUGH STORIES: Inside My Classroom 

I will share some of the ways that I use books to spark creative expression through art.  It is hard to go back and search all the ways I have done it in the past, but moving forward this will be your go-to location to see the projects and the books.

I am a teacher for children ages 2-5 years old at the Y where I have developed a class entitled Art Through Stories.  

I designed Art Through Stories to introduce the children I teach to books and art jointly.  I use books to create various art projects.  I try to help them creatively capture the beauty, lessons, concepts and other learning points within the books through the expression of art.  I do this by using various art mediums.  The art projects also act a tool to help retell the stories to their loved ones.  I am always looking for books to use in my class.  So, if you have one that you think may be a good fit, please send me an email.

*NOTE:  Below are just a few examples. This page will be updated in fall 2017, so stay tuned! 

This is a great project for Mother's Day!  There are so many books for this theme.  You could also use it for flowers.  I will post some books soon!

Find books here:

NOTE:  I mixed glue and orange paint mix as the base on the balloon, so there would still be color under the cut up paper pieces
