Revue Stage

1601 Johnston St.

Long before the current craze of homemade slime, there was Plasticine. After you’ve met Barbara Reid, winner of the Governor General’s award for children’s illustration and honoured as a member of the Order of Canada for her work, your head will be swirling with what you can do with this squishable modelling clay that has been entertaining kids for more than 100 years. The renowned author and artist has always used it to illustrate her multi-award-winning books. You’ll want to know more about her creative process, the challenges and joys of her chosen medium and stories about how she brings her Plasticine images to life. Hint: it’s in the details—from earrings to melting ice cream to eye-rolling boys.

Suitable for Grades 3-6.
