Carpenter, Margot Thomas Comma; or, the Comma that Didn't Below Anywhere Life Skills- Other,
Media- Film,
Multicultural- Other
Thomas Comma (24 minutes), an animated film based on a story by poet Martha Baird, is the charming, humorous, and also sophisticated adventure of a lonely comma looking for the right sentence--that which truly represents him in this world. This 2D film will not only delight and inspire children and adults alike, but also encourage and educate them. "We're all of us like commas," wrote Ms. Baird, "looking for the right sentence." Following the film, Ken Kimmelman, Emmy Award winning filmmaker (Imageryfilm.com), gives an exciting talk on the making of the film and its meaning.

Adams, Lori Exploring Small – Become a Nature Detective! Media- Photography,
Nature- Environment,
Visual Arts- Other
This workshop challenges children to look at ordinary objects in different ways as an artist does. It encourages children to make their own discoveries about properties like color, light, form, texture, line and shading, and then how organizing and presenting this information can create artwork. I will use examples of my work as a fine artist using botanical specimens, examples of verse written for 'Little Flowers with Big Attitude' and my work as a scientific and documentary photographer for non-fiction children’s science books to help students compare and contrast being an artist and being a scientist and to encourage them in both directions. Magnifying glasses, natural objects, sample journals, paper and colored pencils are distributed. Observations are discussed about natural objects, and the various ways they can be interpreted via sketches, verse and/or scientifically. This workshop may also be booked as a series. If so, the participants receive handouts of how to photograph at home and bring in the objects and prints of their experiments.
