Moving Mouth Puppets Mini-Camp

Ages 8-14



Dates & Times

August 15




Brad Shur

Participants will learn how to transform paper into their very own colorful and dynamic puppet character. We'll begin by learning how to create a moving mouth structure with a few simple folds and cuts. Then, students will add features to their characters to turn them into animals, people or whatever they can imagine. Finally we'll begin exploring the skills needed to perform these puppets and put on a great show! Info: Tuition includes an online viewing of a puppet performance on Sunday, August 16.  

This camp takes place via Zoom, and the link to participate will be provided to only registered students by the instructor prior to the first day of camp.
