Welcome to our virtual Public Art Studio program! Join us in coming together around art through this series of family-friendly art-making activities. Art is all around us.



What will you be making?  

Colorful fans.

What are these?

This fun and colorful personal fan project mimics John Scott’s Prayer Meeting (1997), a work from Public Art’s permanent collection on view at the University of Houston-Downtown. The craft is made of simple household materials: cardboard or card stock, aluminum foil, glue, food coloring, and the handles can be either popsicle sticks or old nail files. The end result almost looks like stained glass or a precious metal.
