We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Friday, August 13, 2021.
In this class participants will learn basic puppetry techniques, building simple puppets and props for puppets to use. Some various puppets that will be discussed or created are finger puppets, a simple hand puppet, a sock puppet, rod puppets using found or upcycled objects and shadow puppets. Kids will also create stories for their puppets and create scenes where class members interact, such as puppet interviews and puppets having conversations with each other. Kids are also asked to bring a large empty cereal box from home that they will use to create a cereal box shadow puppet theater at the end of the session.
