Art + Tales: All of Us

Tuesday, Feb 6, 9:30 – 10:00 a.m.

In this art class for the preschool set (ages 2-4), we will read and explore a different picture book each week and then make our own art inspired by the story using a variety of materials. Dress to allow for a mess! Grownups must stay with their young artists during the class. Space is limited: registration is required to reserve your seat!

Kelli is an author, fiber artist, and art educator in Cincinnati, Ohio. She holds a BFA in drawing and painting from Bowling Green State University. She’s taught art in the public and private sectors, made a lot of coffee, stayed home with a little human, wrote grants for a nonprofit, and coordinated events for the best children’s bookstore in the world, all while making art.

Her two board books, Cheer Up, Monster and A Day With Monster, feature a quirky felted monster/abominable snowman friend that was popular on her (now defunct) Etsy site, and are available now from blue manatee press. 

While we may look different or come from different places, we are all part of a community, and we all have things in common! All of Us is a distinctive and vibrant picture book, perfect for kids learning about diversity, open-mindedness, self-acceptance, and respect for others.

Journey through a diverse and beautiful world, meeting people of all ages and races in all sorts of spaces. From museums and classrooms to the circus and beyond, All of Us is designed with quirky collage-style illustrations that highlight shared spaces in our communities. In these spaces, young readers will encounter all kinds of characters, and through these characters they will learn that we all have things in common. We have shared emotions like love, hope, fear, and joy. We share experiences, like eating meals, playing music together, or caring for pets.

Each upbeat and colorful page is packed with reminders that even when we seem different—and even when we’re sometimes far apart—we are all part of a community, and we all benefit when we look at the world around us with open minds and hearts.
