Winter is here!... Well, almost. T'is the season, though, to think of snowy days, make plans for new snow castles, and dig out sleds in hopes of a deep snowfall. What happens when we let our winter wonderland daydreams run wild? One of the world's most popular legendary creatures is, perhaps, the Yeti -- an Abominable Snowman that is said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal and Tibet. This saturday, we will gather in The Story Cave (Michael Somoroff, Illumination I) to learn more about this folk-tale.
Back in the studio, we will look at some examples of Yeti Art by a variety of artists from around the world. How are they similar and how are they different? Children will make two different kinds of Yeti creatures - one from cut paper and one by 'pressing' white paint. These exploratory activities focus on the subject of symmetry while stoking the imagination...!
