Join Torpedo Factory artist Lisa Schumaier and your friends from UpCycle to create a large papier-mâché dog at the Torpedo Factory's Art Safari on October 11th. We will also be collaging and filling the insides of bottle caps at a nearby table, inspired by Lisa's work (see below).
Our papier-mâché pet will make its debut in the Scottish Walk Parade on Sunday, December 6th. Join us to make dog inspired masks in our Drop-In Studio on October 18th and 25th and walk in the parade with us!
The Torpedo Factory's Art Safari
Date & Time: Saturday, October 11, 10 am - 4 pm
Location: The Torpedo Factory, 105 N. Union St., Alexandria, VA 22314
An Alexandria tradition, Art Safari is a day of hands-on craft activities for kids and families. Throughout the day, visitors can participate in activities such as origami, giant papier-mache animals, and more. The Art League and the Alexandria Archaeological Museum will offer even more engaging programming. Children should wear clothing that can get a little dirty. Most activities are appropriate for children kindergarten age with parental supervision through middle school.
