Roller-skating Party Collage Workshop
February 20 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM CSTFree
Join Wild Rumpus for a virtual interactive collage workshop with award-winning author and illustrator Anastasia Higginbotham!
Anastasia’s newest book for young readers, WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW: A STORY OF LIBERATED CHILDHOOD (out 1/26), illustrates how families, teachers, counselors, and other stars are already beaming love at queer, gender nonconforming, and trans children, to protect and bless them as they are. The Roller-skating Party Collage Workshop lets kids put their community in the rink with them real life people they know and trust, as well as strangers or historical figures whose radiant and genuine presence (even in spirit) is liberation.
Who should attend? Anyone who wants to make paper dolls the way Anastasia does, or who wants to be part of exploring this question of who sees and loves us, how that feels and why it matters, with or without making any art.
What will you need to participate?
* A little space to work (the size of a placemat is enough)
* Pens and pencils
* Glue stick
* Squares or rectangles of plain brown grocery bag (or flattened out packing paper or construction paper) for creating faces, bodies, and hands
* Images from magazines and catalogs to make clothes, hair, jewelry, hats, shoes, skates, wheelchairs, and assistive devices. Nothing has to be like it is in real life. Your people can have wings and tails, dress in actual flowers, have hair made of fire! Animals can skate!
* Roller rink background: Purchase any of Anastasia’s books before the event to get a full color 11″x17″ roller rink background printed on cardstock to use for your collage!
* IMPORTANT There are no rules about the materials! A pencil or pen and paper is enough! The back of an envelope or some newspaper is enough! Stick figures are enough!
