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/
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!
