Nall, Christine Face Painting by CHRISTINE Other,
Performing Arts- Other,
Visual Arts- Painting
I have been building children's imaginations through face painting for 12-years now, in both Texas - where I am originally from and New York City - where I currently live. I believe a child's most creative years are when they are young and if we build on their imagination we help them continue to be creative throughout their lives. So their imagination will be open to exploring this grand world around them in a creative way. In many ways they are more creative than I am, and I am always amazed at the ideas they come up with for me to transform them for a few hours. As an artist, art teacher and a professional face painter I do my best to encourage their imaginations to run wild! My talents are not limited to only children's parties, as I have also been hired for adult events and Masquerade balls. I received my BFA - Bachelor's in Fine Art from the University of Texas in Austin. Examples of where face painting is a wonderful addition to a planned event : children's birthday parties, work / company parties, school events, openings, promotions, holiday parties, Halloween, Purim, Mardi Gras, and many more! www.christinenall.com

'Sing, Say, and Play!' in this participatory Christmas music and pageant performance that toasts the old year and welcomes in the new. Set in the Magical Days of Yore, it is fanciful weaving of historic music, traditions, and surprises. 'Wassail' comes from the Old English greeting Wes hael, meaning 'Be thou hail!' and wassailers even today go about England carolling friends & neighbors in this traditional musical well-wishing. To highlight the event, the audience takes on roles in a traditional mummers’ play - a lighthearted spectacle of singing, costumes and laughter. Mummers' plays are still performed in rural England as improvisatory theater in streets, homes, and community gatherings, and feature a host of characters who symbolically assist the sun in its turning through the shortest days of the year. The culminating event of the play is the grand Wassail Bowl, around which all gather to wish a fine Yuletide Season! Come One and All, Young and Old, Shy and Bold, and let thy fancies run free (and be sure to bring your cameras!)
