Storytime & Art with GreenHill and Elmer The Elephant

Calling all preschoolers! Join our partner, GreenHill Center for NC Art for some storytime and art making fun every Masterpiece Friday. Check out a project below inspired by the David McKee story, Elmer. And for more ARTastic fun with GreenHill, check out their YouTube channel here!


  • Colored paper - don't have ready-made paper? Make your own! You can paint paper pieces, color them with crayons or colored pencils - anything will work

  • Old magazines, newspapers, or advertisements

  • Scissors

  • A ruler or straight edge (this could even be the side of a cardboard box), or just try cutting strips on your own! Art never has to be perfect.

Ready to get crafty? Watch the video below to get started!

GreenHill is a Greensboro Downtown Parks program partner. The work they do with us is critical to providing FREE visual art programming to our park community. As we make our way through these unprecedented times, consider how you might support local Greensboro non-profits like us and GreenHill, as well as small businesses, artists, entrepreneurs, makers, and more. We'll continue to bring you free programming through our digital platforms and look forward to having you join us and GreenHill back in the parks soon!
