In this class, students have the opportunity to learn how to create and perform various types of puppets. Styles covered in this class will include shadow puppets, found object puppets, dry paper mâché hand puppets, and Muppet-style hand/rod puppets. Students will receive introductory training in television puppetry, as well as puppetry for theater. Every student will get the chance to film a final music video that they will get as a private YouTube link after the last class!
