Draw with Dr. Dana

Hey Pop Goes the Page readers! How would you like to Draw with Dr. Dana? You’re invited to participate in a our awesome virtual program in which you can spend 20-30 minutes drawing with Dr. Dana, creating whatever stories and illustrations both your minds can conjure. The program is intended for kids ages 3 & up, but that doesn’t mean a grown-up can’t participate in the session too!

Simply e-mail danas@princeton.edu to schedule a Zoom meeting (or we can forgo screens and chat on the phone). The program’s focus is not on the final product, but the interactive experience of connecting through stories and art.

We also have a fantastic writing program for kids, two amazing virtual escape rooms, an an exciting archive of author interviews, and more. A round up of all our virtual programs can be found here!

It Begins!

horse and ridersHello, and welcome to Pop Goes the Page! Here, you will find all the delightful art projects and activities we do at the Cotsen Children’s Library’s story time programs!

I believe that reading (and being read to) is a magical thing. I build on that magic by designing projects and activities that inspire the imagination, strengthen connections to the story, and lead to further creative play at home.

Even if you don’t consider yourself to be artsy – you can do these projects.  Even if you don’t have all the supplies – you can do these projects. Feel free to tweak, substitute, and modify them as you see fit. But most importantly…ENJOY!
