Jamaica Plain resident Dana Willeke and daughter Neela, age 10, create a paper maché puppet theater and puppets that tell a story at the Families Creating Together free Summer Arts Workshop Series “The Power of Our Stories – Making Puppets with Paper Maché” led by teaching artist Dey Hernández at Curtis Hall Community Center, Jamaica Plain. More than 30 children, parents, grandparents and friends participated in the six creative workshops and field trip to Puppet Showplace in Brookline. FCT thanks Boston Center for Youth & Families/Mayor Martin Walsh, The Lenny Zakim Fund, Boston Cultural Council and JP Community Center Council for making this series possible. FCT is a program of Community Service Care/Tree of Life Coalition in Jamaica Plain. The next FCT workshop series will begin in October.
