Paper Puppet Show (Ages 6-8)
Paper puppets are an easy and fun project. Starting with 2D materials such as papers, fabrics, and felt, construct many different people, animals, and objects to create a miniature world! Methods for articulating the paper puppets will be demonstrated. Details will be worked in using additional materials such as paints, inks, markers, and more. Each round of making will be followed by a puppet show presentation leading up to the final all-class show.
- This is an On-site course. Students must follow current CDC + VDH guidance outlined on our website: visarts.org
