Tompkins Square Library | Fly Away with Books

Part of Fly Away with Books


Corals with Lucie Brunellière

Arts and crafts | From age 4 and above

Specific activities on the graphic design of corals. This workshop will build on photos of corals and the double page illustration from Deep in the Ocean, interpreting corals through graphic design with different motifs. The creations from the worshop will slide into in a transparent pocket where the child can keep their own future drawing of all types of fish.

Colorama Memory with Cruschiform

Card game | Suitable for children aged 4-7 years

Inspired by the book Colorama. In this workshop, a collection of illustrated colored cards in various shades are placed face down. Each card has an identical pair. Each player takes it in turns to turn over 2 cards, trying to find the pairs. Every time a player wins a card, they get a general knowledge question on the color or image illustrated on the card. Be careful; there may be traps! The person who wins the most cards wins the game.

Pop-up Art with Louis Rigaud or Anouck Boisrobert

Arts and craft | From age 6 and above

Create a garden-themed pop-up card. After a short presentation of books by Anouck Boisrobert and Louis Rigaud, the two pop-up book authors will show easy techniques to try out so that everyone can create 3D vegetables and an animated 3D scene, leaving the creations completely open to the imagination.
