Readings

My readings take the form of a talk about 'Imagination and creation'. I am happy to read poems from my book, but as kids are very interested in the media the art for the book is created from a lot of my talk is based on the illustrations and how to use your imagination to be able to create art from anything!

We talk about how my people are all colors and sizes , how fish are made from petals and leaves, how I make my own paper, and how you can use art to send out messages to the world.

Special Equipment:

I bring my own art samples,handmade paper samples, pressed flowers, fibers, paper making screens and other supplies. I also bring copies of my books 'Adrianna art for the Young at Heart and 'Sandy's Incredible Shrinking Footprint'.

Workshops

Option #1: My first option is basically a poetry reading from my book and discussion about using recycled, found, and organic material to create. Question and answer. Audience size: 20-60 students.

Option #2: the second is based on the first but with an opportunity to make something out of materials provided including my bringing enough handmade paper for all children to have a surface to work on. Audience size: 20-40 students with assistants.

Option #3: includes all of the above with making paper. This is a more labour intensive workshop which requires two visits by me. One day to make paper another to create a piece of art on the paper.
this option is really more for sumer camp type situations. Audience size: 20-40 students with assistants.

Special Equipment:

I have three levels of workshop. If the workshop is to include making handmade recycled paper some supplies will be needed. What is needed is determined on an individual basis, depending upon what the organizer is looking for.

Book Sales:
