YOUTH ARTS

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.
