Meet Our Hero’s
Secret Room Books with Durham Academy 6th grade students
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!
