Teaching Workshops

Coming this winter: Create “Your Stylish Puppet”

YAApuppetstyle

I’m trying out some ideas for a Youth Arts Arise class at Arts in the Armory in Somerville. We’ll make heads with small styrofoam balls, then style hair, clothes and jewelry for the outfit that makes the puppet. The schedule will be posted soon at artsatthearmory.org/

Summer fun, Arts at the Armory

Creating our own “Jack and the Beanstalk” at Arts at the Armory in August

We created characters, tied green fabric into a beanstalk, and got the story going at Arts Discovery Week in August. At some point the beanstalk became horizontal — oops!

Puppets Together Class at Arlington Center for the Arts

makingpuppetsdog
I will be teaching a 5-session workshop at Arlington Center for the Arts, once a week from January 18 to February 15, from 3 to 4:30.
We will create puppet characters — with felt, socks, paper plates and fabric — and have a lot of fun teaching them to walk, run, dance, fly, talk and sing. Each class will include time to explore and play with puppets and props.
I hope your 5 to 8-year old will join me!
