Based on a popular MAD program, this 45-minute online workshop will be facilitated by a MAD educator and bring a picture book to life through interactive story time, visual exploration, and artmaking. Join us for a reading and discussion of Faith Ringgold’s beloved picture book Tar Beach. Then, create your very own story quilt based on a personal memory using paints, fabric, markers, and paper in a hands-on making workshop. 

This program is intended for children ages 4-10.
