  • Monster Maker

    Join one of our residents, Nourbano Hijazi, in a fun twist on the old classic Exquisite Corpse game!

    Each participant will take turns drawing monsters on folded sections of a long paper scroll, leaving little information for the next person to see. Once everyone adds their contribution on the scroll, passing it on until it is full, we will unfold it to see the awesome creature on it!

    Everyone will get to choose different elements of the long monster, and make their own beast sculpture out of air-dry clay and other materials.
