Create your own fantastical toy creation from hacked stuffed animals from the thrift store! A fuzzy arm here, a plastic head there and Blammo! You’ve made a unique, original friend with a bit of sewing and glue. This all ages workshop comes from the not-so-evil-genius mind of Shawn Bowman who specializes in community arts enrichment projects which stimulate our artistic imagination, check out her other work at

Summer ArtPark Al Fresco:
This June and July we'll be getting outside to make a host of unconventional and totally cool interactive objects together, from collage art with a local artist to frankencreatures by cutting up old creatures and sewing them back together. Workshops are free with all supplies and dinner included, but RSVP is encouraged! Kids, teens, and their adult friends are all encouraged to participate with individual and group projects. Pets welcome!

About the instructor:
Arts educator Shawn Bowman specializes in renegade art education creating humorous modern artifacts, workshop instruction and game design. Passionate about enabling creative communities, Bowman empowers students both young and old with hands on craft projects, literacy through comic writing and creating table top games.
