In this fun and rigorous class, students will learn the fundamentals of hand puppetry. Starting with basic exercises for pantomime and building towards multi-character scenes, students will acquire a “movement vocabulary” that lets their hands express almost any emotion or action. Participants will also build their own puppet to take home. The 7th class will be a final performance in front of friends and family.
This is an intro-level class. Lessons are cumulative so consistent attendance is important. Participants will be expected to work on projects outside of class time.
