Life on a Stick: Everyday and Sublime Stories
By Anita White

Drawing is how Anita navigates everyday moments with humor, philosophy and empathy. Her sketchbook is always open to document life’s fleeting moments. Everyday difficulties and hassles are the doorway to a humorous story. “Nothing is so scary you can’t draw it!”

These visual puppet shows are “drawn” from her everyday life. Pen and watercolor drawings are taped onto bamboo skewers or toothpicks and stuck into simple styrofoam stages.

The whimsical and philosophical puppet show she will share include:

  • A Compassionate Bank Teller
  • From Here to There and Back Again: A Winter Fantasy Getaway
  • A little sliver of Life on a Toothpick from the 60’s & 70’s
  • Fragrant Fun at The Minneapolis Impound Lot
  • Rumi Shadow Poems with Inner Meaning and Light

Following her presentation the audience will have a chance to create their own tiny “Life on a Toothpick Moments.” Materials are provided.

Deepest gratitude to Dreamland Arts for this opportunity to share old puppet shows in a new light.
