NEXT STEPS: IT’S UP TO YOU! CHECK OUT FOUR PROJECTS BELOW.
MAKE A VIDEO!
Make a short (20 seconds to one minute) video with our paper puppets for our FOX & OWL TINY FILM & PHOTO FESTIVAL later this summer. Your video will be shown with videos made by other people in Arlington and beyond – get your friends involved! Watch this sample by artist Sara Peattie, who used a homemade toy theater to take Fox and Owl on 3 super short adventures. You don’t have to use a toy theater; watch Kari Percival’s video made in her own back yard on our GET INSPIRED page! MORE ABOUT MAKING VIDEOS
We all take photos to capture a moment or tell a story. Think about your Fox and Owl. Where would they go? Who will they meet? What would they do? Send in your photos so we can make them part of our FOX & OWL TINY FILM & PHOTO FESTIVAL later this summer. MORE ABOUT PHOTOS
We’re calling this: Fox and Owl say hello! Make art featuring Fox and Owl for your window, front door or porch. Put Fox and Owl in a painting, drawing, collage or even sculpture. Add a message from Fox and Owl for your neighbors to see. This is a great project to make by hand. MORE ABOUT WINDOW ART
Many puppeteers like to use a tiny theater to create a complete world to tell their stories. MORE ABOUT MAKING A TINY THEATER
