This class builds to a culminating experience for your student. Puppetry is an exciting form of storytelling that can bring stories to life in unique and fun ways appealing to all different audiences. Some of your favorite shows have been brought to life through puppetry, such as The Lion King and Little Shop of Horrors. Each lesson is designed to explore techniques, provide opportunities for creative collaboration, and give them opportunities to perform. There are many different forms of puppetry, from the classic sock puppet you know as a kid to large and elaborate high-quality puppets. Your student will broaden their performance horizons while utilizing the different forms of puppetry. While the focus of this class is puppetry, your students will also explore other skills. Puppetry is an excellent way to learn the art of expressive storytelling. We will leverage teamwork, creative thinking, and problem-solving while exploiting performance skills, storytelling, and playwriting.
