TAP got its art on!

The afternoon was warm and muggy, but that didn’t stop the TAP team from getting creative in Wooldridge Square Park for the Austin Circle of Theatre’s kickoff of Get Your Art On.

Many families came to make crafts and learn about Theatre Action Project for the beginning of National Arts and Humanities Month. TAP helped kids get really imaginative with their finger puppets, making any and all animals they could think of. Many spiders and dogs were made with rainbow pipe cleaner legs, but the masterpiece of the day was a pink cat finger puppet. The TAP team helped a little girl named Ivy create her rendition of the perfect finger puppet- complete with a purple puffy head and glittery whiskers. The kids were all smiles and “thank yous” as they left to explore more of the park with their parents.

Other local Austin art organizations were out to kickoff the event. The Hideout improvisation group performed, getting laughs from the children and their parents. Also, the Austin Bike Zoo was out in rare form with their bat and butterfly bikes on display in the park. It was also great to see TAPsters, Sachi deCou, Leigh Shaw, and Brooke Lillard performing in Austin Bike Zoo’s “Wheels of Wonderland”. There were even two knights on bikes jousting with the audience to cheer them on. The afternoon was an enjoyable time for everyone who came out and TAP was happy to be part of the action.
