Booking Going on a Sleigh Ride for Winter 2019

Going on a Sleigh Ride is a fun and silly interactive theatrical storytelling event for young children......shoot me an email at artistvo@verizon.net or call 610-644-8088 to book for this winter. 

Participants choose which character they would like to be (bears, foxes, raccoons, horses, snow fairies, deer etc) As the story goes along, call and response style, they systematically pile into an ever expanding sleigh. The sleigh won't move until everyone is in!







Afterwards everyone makes a cardinal wand to take home....

 So much fun!

The Capture and Return of Bald Beatrice the Baby Mermaid with Seniors

Friday was a special day with a small group of lovely people at a senior center. I thought I WAS a senior since I'm 64, but they are all past their 80's so they ARE seniors. It was a pleasure getting to know some of them after the performance, always humbled by their resilience and wisdom. 

Everyone just loves to play, no matter what the age! The Capture and Return of Bald Beatrice the Baby Mermaid! We had many moments of laughter and a few of tenderness.

3 D Wall Pocket with Flowers Acrylic and Paper on Canvas by Artist Victoria O'Neill

I love fabric so much, and manipulating it into different forms. So, bought a roll of canvas and started to paint and collage papers onto it, with the thought of creating wall pockets with flowers. This did not come easy. Made many adjustments along the way but at this point just have to say Ta Da!

The completed piece is 19" x 14" x 10"

ArtyPantz Productions Coming into the Home Stretch for Summer 2018

It's been a fabulous summer traveling all around sharing storytelling events hither and yon. This Thursday I will be at La Petite Academy in Exton for a private event of The Capture and Return of Bald Beatrice the Baby Mermaid, and then pretty much done for the summer.

I will be teaching at KenCrest Pottstown and working with the Phoenixville Area Senior Center here and there in the fall, plus some other creative endeavors.
But most attention will be shifting to Sew Bee Mine, making beautiful one of a kind wearable art aprons and other things with vintage and other unique fabrics.

An idea for a seventh storytelling event has been floating around in my brain for the past year or so, and maybe this year it will get done. It's so much work to make enough costumes, props etc for a show, but once they are made, they are made. And then it's just a matter of using them!
I am also completely absorbed with the planning and implementation of Kiwanis Club of Phoenixville's KidsFest which will be taking place on October 6th in Reeves Park Phoenixville. 
Life is full and good.
