Playing With & For The Community
9th March was a Saturday well spent with family members and some art making!
SCYA traveled to the other side of the island to Boon Lay Community Club for the second workshop of our Let’s Invent Stories art program.
For this session, SCYA instructor Jac and fellow member Rachel taught the families how to make basic percussion instruments to create the sound scape for their own puppet show.
Let’s make a shaker!
Start by pouring the beans into a cut bottle base…
Sh-sh-sh-shaking with excitement over easy-to-make shakers!
Next, roll a strip of vanguard into a cylinder and tape both sides to make drumheads.
Make a rope to hang the drum over your neck with.
Look at the families exercising their creativity and twisting the ropes to make a colourful braid!
Colour in your drum! Make patterns! Go crazy!
Yay! Aren’t the designs spectacular?
Lastly, beautify two paper plates and staple them together.
Look, such a gorgeous sunset gradient. Magical!
Attach bells to the plate to make a tambourine.
Too tricky? Get daddy to help!
Make some noise!
This Saturday, the workshop will guide participants in inventing their own tall tales and directing their very own puppet show.
