The art project will start in March 2011 with a Fall River story telling circle for community members of all ages. We will chose 3-4 characters that were or are significant for our community.
In May and June 2011 art workshops for community members of all ages to create 4 giant puppets depicting (more or less ?) the chosen characters will be facilitated by Becky Thompson and Jacqueline Steudler.
Finally the giant puppets will lead the Parade on July 1st during the Fall River Canal Days 2011. During the art workshops participants will have the possibilities to design banners for the Fall River Canal Days and masks that they can wear during the parade.
Important: All workshops are free of cost for participants.
We are looking forward to share our passion for art making and connect with community members of all ages.
Jacqueline Steudler is the art project coordinator, please direct all questions to her. We will keep everybody informed through the Fall River Canal Days’ website.
If you like to volunteer for the art workshops let Jacqueline know. She has already started a list.
Dates for the story telling circle and the art workshops have to be confirmed. Stay tuned.
