Visiting artist Kristine Biegel leads participants through a dimensional collage project inspired by the wood-carved artworks of Maine artist Bernard Langlais. Using a wide variety of materials such as cardboard and foam, with many choices of color, texture, and shape, young artists can build their own multi-layered animal artwork much like the ones found in the museum. Biegel is the owner of The Creative Child and Adult Arts Program. She travels throughout New England working with artists of all ages and believes that everyone can make great art. She is also the writer and illustrator of I Love You to Ten, a Maine-inspired counting book for emerging readers.

Following the activity, PMA Films presents Mary and the Witch's Flower, a film by Hiromasa Yonebayashi.

Family programming is made possible in part by the Peggy L. Osher Education Endowment at the Portland Museum of Art.
