What child doesn’t like Monsters or this book: Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.Join us on a literary adventure about a mischievous boy, Max, who's room turns into an imaginative forest after his mom sends him to bed without dinner. He travels by boat to a place where the wild things live, puts a magic spell on them, and makes them dance and perform crazy acts. Max becomes lonely on the island and sails back home to his room where dinner is waiting for him. The illustrations are a combination of paint and colored pencil, which leads the class to create their very own Monster Art. We will discuss various Monster characteristics we saw in the book and draw on 12”x18” watercolor paper using crayons, colored pencils and watercolors. At the end of the class we will pin up our art and do a Wild Dance with our Monsters!
