History and Cultural Studies Through the Art of Puppets & Puppetry

Puppets are not just for entertainment; Puppetry enjoys a long and culturally significant history of ceremony, ritual, national identity and skilled craftsmanship that we will explore hands-on through this delightful approach to world history!

Description

Class Experience

This is a more advanced version of a class I already offer with which I wanted to explore deeper. I have collected and performed with puppets for over 40 years. As a teen, I aspired to work as a puppeteer for The Jim Henson Company, but learned that I did not have the physical type they required on set. Instead, I have used puppets in my teaching career to entertain and captivate my students while helping them to understand and remember key learning concepts.
Handouts, templates, instructions and links will be provided by the teacher. Most materials required are commonly used in the average home. Lists will be provided as needed with plenty of time for acquiring materials.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Hello! Do you love puppets? Have you ever played with a puppet? Do you own a puppet? If not, that's ok. We will actually make our first puppet together within the first five minutes of our first class! Don't believe me? Well, I can't wait to show you! All you will need is a set of washable markers or a tube of lipstick and some eyeliner! If you do own a puppet that you love, we would like to meet him/her or it so please bring it along with you to share with the class.
