Community Arts – Hand Puppets
September 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
September 10th and September 17th. Blue Horse, Green Frog, Purple Cat….Hand Puppets!
We’ll create hand puppets. The hand puppet is worn on the hand by the puppeteer. The puppeteer’s hand is used to control the movement of the puppets.
For the younger artist we’ll be making simple but fun puppets using colorful paper and templates inspired by the the children’s book Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See By Bill Martin and illustrated by Eric Carle.
For older artists that want to create a more involved hand puppet, we’ll build puppets using paper maché heads on a fabric body, inspired by animals and birds.
* Paper maché takes time to dry, and will take two to Saturdays to create a puppet with a paper maché head and cloth body.
– A puppet theater will be set up to explore puppetry through play.
