March Artist LOFT Activity:
Queering Women's History Month
DIY Queer Paper Mache Activist & Icons
Monday, March 20th, 2023 | 6:30pm - 8:30pm at The LOFT
Paper mache, which is derived from papier-mâché, or "chewed paper" in French, is a sculpting medium composed of paper pieces that have been bound together by an adhesive paste. For the most part, paper mache creations are made today using two common techniques. For this activity, we will be using these techniques to make your own paper mache of a Queer Activist or Icon.
Activist & Icon Ideas: Honoring LGBTQ Leaders for Women’s History Month
Activist & Icon Ideas: 16 queer Black trailblazers who made history
Activist & Icon Ideas: Important Queer Women to Know in Women’s History
Activist & Icon Ideas: LGBTQ+ Women Who Made History
