With September (and the new school year) just around the corner, what better way to celebrate learning than by collaborating with a teaching rockstar! Meri Cherry is an atelierista, aka an art teacher, at a Reggio inspired preschool focused on community and experiential learning with a self-guided curriculum, meaning kids have more opportunity to explore and create their own art…how cool is that?!
On top of being an inspiring teacher, Meri also runs her very own process based art studio for kids and adults alike – that focuses on the process rather than the finished product.
Collaborating with Meri Cherry has been crazy fun because of her interpretive style and commitment to letting children choose what they want to do with the materials. With this in mind, I give you September’s collaboration!
These sheets feature art materials to aid kiddos in creating their sticker masterpiece- even better- they can use these stickers to help create their own mini art studio where the possibilities are endless!
To kick off the collab, we’re doing a giveaway that includes TONS of stickers + Meri Cherry’s creativity filled book, Play Make Create: A Process Art Handbook
Read our Q+A with Meri below, be sure to sign up for the Kid’s Sticker Club, and get her stickers (if you’re not already a member), and enter the giveaway…
