ONSITE: Giant Puppet Parade (Ages 9-11)

Join us in this parade! In this class, we will make large paper-mâché & cardboard puppets around a common theme that will be decided during the first day of class. On the final day of the class, we will have a parade around the block! This class will teach youth to get in touch with their theatrical side, build and carry puppets, and participate in a Richmond favorite tradition inspired by the All the Saints Theater Company’s Halloween Parade.

Special Notes

  • This is an On-site course. Students must follow social distancing protocols and wear masks at all times. For more info visit visarts.org.
