Stories in Play; bringing books to life through art & play, for 3 – 5th grade.
Join the Trailhead Children’s Museum for Stories, Art, and Play during the Mountain Words Literary Festival. The Trailhead will offer sessions for children in ages 5-11, that will bring various books to life through art and play. Imagine and create your own scenes for “The Book With No Pictures” by B.J. Novak, and dive into the detailed pages of graphic novel “Extincts: Quest for the Unicorn’s Horns” by Scott Magoon. Participants will have the opportunity to express their interpretation of these literary works through art, and explore books through play!
All art materials included!
