Stanley Creates: Star Accordion Book

  • 2:00 PM–3:00 PM

Online **This Event is Full**

Participants will learn how to fold an accordion book that expands into many stars when opened. Lauren Linahon will guide kids through folding and assembling their books and offer individualized help throughout the process. Kids can then illustrate the books and write their own stories. 

Stanley Creates is an interactive program for children and teens to learn artmaking techniques using everyday materials. Taking inspiration from the museum’s collection, participants will play with materials to create unique projects at home. Lauren Linahon will demonstrate the process and provide feedback and support to participants as they make their artwork. 

This event is now full and registration has closed. Video instructions will be available after the event for those who are unable to attend, but would like to make the projects.

Lauren Linahon is a graduate student in art education. She has led artmaking workshops for United Action for Youth and taught studio sections of the course Create, Imagine, Play: Human Development through Arts at the University of Iowa.


Cost: Free and open to all
