I've lived in NYC for 26 years, and sometimes I think I'm over it, but all it takes is a hole in my schedule, a spontaneous decision, and art supplies to perk me up. A group of us volunteered to decoupage images celebrating the history of Astor Place onto the body parts of giant cardboard puppets for the Astor Alive festival this Saturday. We started with the torso (shown here) and then moved on to the pelvis, legs, arms, and head. Truth be told, I've never met a craft session I didn't like, but this one was extra fun (and educational!) #nerdalert #astoralive #processionalartsworkshop #villagealliance I think they still need volunteers from now until Saturday's procession!
