Bibi, Tutu, Nana... Picturing Grandma at the Kennedy Center

What makes your Grandma special?
Is it her silver hair or yummy pies?
Her hefty hugs or sparkling eyes?

I led an interactive art workshop encouraging families to picture Grandma in cut-paper collage at the Kennedy Center's Annual Multicultural Children's Book Festival November 1 in Washington, DC.

The room was filled to capacity with over 100 mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts, uncles and kids of all ages utilizing cut and torn papers and other assorted materials to create their lively mixed media portraits.
