Tell Me a Story explores storytelling in books and art works. Over the course of a few weeks, we will read a chapter book and explore similar narratives found in the Museum’s art objects. At the end of each book, participants will create their own artwork based on these themes.

This month, we will be reading Deborah Zemke’s Bea Garcia: My Life in Pictures. We will be exploring how the artists in the Folly Cove and the Fitz Henry Lane galleries tell stories through their art, just like Bea Garcia.

Have you missed the stories so far? Watch recordings of Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4 in the CAM Video Vault!


Author's Interview with Deborah Zemke
February 3, 2022 from 4:00 - 5:00 pm

In response to the increase in COVID numbers and out of abundance of caution, CAM’s “Tell Me a Story: My Life in Pictures” art activity, “Tell Me a Story in Six Panels,” on Thursday, February 3 will not take place in the CAM Studio as scheduled. 


Instead, we are delighted to present a virtual event presented on Zoom of a one-on-one conversation between the author and illustrator of “Bea Garcia: My Life in Pictures,” Deborah Zemke, and CAM Educator Franny Zawadzki on February 3 from 4-5 pm. The conversation will be followed by a question-and-answer session where participants are encouraged to ask questions. Please note, this event will be recorded. Open to ages 6-9.
