Created by Durham Academy 6th Grade Students, 2014
Artist, Peg Gignoux collaborates with ninety-four sixth graders and their
Language Arts teachers at Durham Academy in a dynamic book arts residency
that will yield vibrant pop up books that explore the vocabulary of Hero. Students
draft a story based on a personal hero who has had significant impact on their
lives. Using the visual tools of collage, students learn to see as illustrators as they
cut, fold and paint their way through the secret room book
structures. Extraordinary stories, colorful scenes, secret portals!
