Create puppet replicas of famous Oklahomans at this month’s Art Start! With assistance from Tulsa Artist Fellowship’s visual artist Karl Jones, students will select from a list of famous Oklahomans and make a 2D puppet of their favorite person. Younger puppeteers can glue together pre-cut animal puppet shapes featuring Gathering Place characters and animals! Don’t miss out on this month’s free Art Start program happening Saturday, September 14 in ONEOK Boathouse from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.


As we move towards a more technical world, Art Start programs will highlight STEAM classes in a fun way for children to see that the arts and science are often integrated, not separate.
