After a short walk in a light rain and lunch at Atkins Farms, we arrived at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. Nick Clark, the museum’s Chief Director, gave us a private tour and allowed us to film specific parts of the gallery. He shared the history of the museum, and walked us through Eric Carle’s book creation and illustration process.
The Carle was the first museum we’ve been to that specifically promotes and celebrates creativity. Besides the amazing art, multilingual library and a customer-centric book shop, the gallery boasts the always-open Penguin Art Studio where children and adults of all ages can create art of any sort.
