Imagining Dragons

Eli Whitney Museum

Show Menu

2018 Summer Program

There are too many dragons to remember. Dragons come from all cultures. Do all dragons fly? No! Do all dragons talk? Some do, and some tell clever riddles. Are all dragons dangerous? Not at all.

Start with dragons that surprise us. Everyone Knows What a Dragon Looks Like by Jay Williams and illustrated by Mercer Mayer, is a good beginning. Construct the Dragon that almost no one notices. Construct the friendliest dragon whose stories you have heard. Construct the smallest dragon your fingers can assemble. Construct a dragon that really flies. Then take bits and pieces of all the dragon stories you have heard plus scraps of cloth, wood and wire to invent your very own dragon.
