Thank you to everyone that participated in our draw at The Feast of Ages on July 31st, 2016 in Uxbridge.   Congratulations to Elayne Bassett, Elisabeth Chomko & Lindsay Fung!  You won an interactive workshop for a JK/SK class or grade 1 class.  The workshop includes reading the book titled, “We Are Colourful Friends” using hand-held puppets, acting out the pages of the book and creating a collage.  As a follow-up activity, children will receive colouring sheets.

The class will be visited by Ruby.  A six foot tall red flamingo.  She has a tiara, necklace and fancy high heels just like the character in the book.

Brock the Croc (We Are Colourful Friends)

Several JK/SK students at Blessed Scalabrini CES and St. David CES (‪#‎YCDSB‬) liked Ruby (a 6′ tall sculpture of a red flamingo) and requested that I make sculptures of the other 10 characters in my book titled, We Are Colourful Friends.

Ruby is thrilled to announce her new colourful friend Brock the Croc. Brock is made of recycled materials and paper mache. We welcomed him into our family on Family Day 2016. He weighs 5 lbs and 1oz and is 4′ 2”.

Brock will be joining Ruby & I at future JK/SK interactive workshops within the GTA.
