To celebrate The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art’s 10th anniversary year, we invite friends, families, schools, and other organizations throughout the country and abroad to create 3-dimensional caterpillar sculptures out of found materials. Be inspired by Eric Carle’s most beloved character, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and transform ANY combination of recycled or found materials (plastic, paper, foam, wood, metal, etc.) into a 3-dimensional caterpillar sculpture.

Three entries will be chosen at random at the Museum’s Children’s Book Festival on June 8, 2013 and will receive an original doodle by Eric Carle!

There are very specific guidelines on how to enter (for example, they do NOT want you to send your original artwork; entrants should submit jpeg photos of their artwork on CD).  Please visit the Making Art With Children blog to learn more details.  Submissions must be postmarked by May 31, 2013.
