Kids of all ages are invited to create hand-held paper-craft masks, which will help participants create stories and theatrical fun for hours and days after they’re made.
Visit the exhibitions at the Lightcatcher for inspiration and then join Gail in the FIG studio to make your own mask! Co-sponsored by the Allied Arts Education Project.
Here’s a little bit of information about Gail from the Allied Arts website.
“Gail’s career has been dedicated to art, youth, education, and community and organizational development. Her early artistic endeavors concentrated on weaving, and she grew to love art appreciation and history as the years unfolded. She was employed for a decade as the Director of the Anacortes Arts and Crafts Festival, after which she began focusing on arts education. As a long-time arts education consultant to numerous school districts, Gail has developed various curricular projects and community-based partnership programs. The comprehensiveness of her professional background allows her to teach, assist schools in partnering with local organizations and agencies, facilitate leadership teams and committees, and introduce community-based exhibits and performances, as well as present professional development seminars and conferences.”
