ACCESSIBLE ART MAKING FROM OUR SPIRAL Q HOMES TO YOURS
In the wake of COVID 19 we have launched “Art at Home with Spiral Q”; a way for our communities to find solace and healing in art-making as well as a way to connect to important themes of this current moment. New videos released every week. We’d love to see what you’ve created! Share your project results with us on social media by tagging @spiralq or email us a pic or video at firstname.lastname@example.org

PAPER MACHÉ HAND PUPPETS!
You’re still staying at home a lot right? In this activity, Spiral Q college apprentice and Tyler School of Art Student Bee shows you how to make paper maché hand puppets! You can make one of someone you love (as Bee did with our warehouse dog Lola! ❤), a character from your imagination or from your favorite book or someone you admire from history – put on a show! make a video! hand puppets can oftentimes express what we can’t always say – who is your puppet and what can you express through them? – good for all ages, but those 4th grade and younger probably need some assistance. 🙂 #goodjobbee #quarentine #puppets
