Book Making Workshop For Kids! With Elizabeth Mellott

May 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm CDT

Can books growl? They can growl, roar, purr, or whatever you design your creature to do! Spend the afternoon making your own pop-up accordion book! Participants will be guided through the construction of creating a V fold pop up page, an accordion book, and have time to illustrate their own story. Students can create a monster, dinosaur, cat, or whatever creature they design. All materials will be supplied.

The Oak Cliff Cultural Center located on Jefferson Blvd and is a 3 minute walk from the shops and restaurants of the Bishop Arts District.

This workshop is appropriate for kids ages 9-13.
