HAVE FUN! Make Art for All Souls Procession!by Charles Spillar on Sep. 22, 2009, under arts, Tucson Art
A great opportunity for family fun has arrived again this year with a new mask and giant puppet workshop started September 22 and it is FREE! The workshop is being held at Splinter Bros. and Sisters Warehouse every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 6:00-9:00 PM. The address is 901 N. 13th Ave.
This is a great opportunity for the whole family and individuals to work under professional instruction designing, constructing, and decorating a mask or big head puppet to wear or carry in the 20th All Souls Procession Sunday, November 8, 2009.
These workshops will also help people build their own altar, float or bicycle decoration for the procession. These workshops run from September 22 until November 12th. (Clean up after the parade)
Extra workshops in October will be offered on Sundays from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM focusing on building specific projects. Paper Lanterns on October 4th; Paper Pulp and Bread Masks on October 11th; Paper Flowers on October 18th and Sugar Skulls on October 25th. WOW! These are all FREE also. Sounds like the best deal in town.
Better mark your calendars for October 17th for Tucson Puppet Work’s “POTBOILER” fundraiser show to benefit the All Souls Procession Mask and Puppet Making Workshops. The fun starts at 6:00 PM and visitors of all ages will experience puppet shows, music and art, during the entertainment filled evening. While there be sure and visit their new studio and workshop space area.
