Instructions:

Step 1: Gather your chosen materials and print out the Art Feeds Sound suit worksheet from artfeeds.org if you are able. Any fun art materials you have around your space are perfect! You should, most importantly, have a sturdy surface to glue your materials to and some glue of your choice.

Step 2: Draw an outline and then cut out the shape of a human or just your favorite shape out of your chosen surface.

Step 3 (Optional): Cut out a smaller rectangle from your base material. Cut a slit in the middle and leave a bit of extra material at the bottom of your other main shape so that it can be put in the slit. This will allow your Soundsuit(s) to stand straight up at the end.)

Step 4: Glue your materials to the surface in a pattern, design, or just randomly!

Step 5: Admire your new Soundsuit that shows who you are on the inside!
