Mask Making & Puppet Theater (ages 3-6)

Each week, children will learn how to make different types of puppets or masks to go along with a story or song for the day. Puppets will be made from fabrics, paper mache and more! In the last week, students will come together to put on a show where all of the puppets and masked characters act out their parts.


Animation (ages 6-11)

Students will create and develop characters and bring them to life through movement. Animation allows students to combine storytelling, drawing and movie-making. Students will build story boards, create flip books and explore stop-motion animation. Throughout this class, they will create an animated piece of their own and learn different techniques and styles of animation.



Collage and Mixed Media

This workshop will explore the art of collage and its manymaterials, techniques, and approaches and possibilities for personal expression. Students will cut, tear, and glue a variety of found and painted papers to larger paper and work with media such as water based paint, pencils, and charcoal. They will experiment with color, shape, texture and line to layer compositions and organize images and ideas. Some projects will include three dimensional formats such as assemblage and artists’ books and visits, when possible, with local artists who use paper. Relfection and dialogue will be an ongoing part of the workshop. All levels of experience are welcome. Students bring their own supplies and will receive a list of materials and small tools.
