An immersive course for beginner and early-intermediate puppeteers ages 12 and up - FRIDAYS, SEPT. 10 - OCT. 29, 6-7pm. $25, all supplies included.
Over the course of 8, one-hour sessions, students will learn the “in’s and out’s” of beginning puppetry AND design their own puppet using all the materials and supplies included in the Puppet Kit! Guided through the course by puppeteer Scotty Swan, students will have a blast, meet new people, and learn about one of the most creative visual and performing arts in the world... PUPPETRY!
Lessons include the basics of a moving-mouth puppetry with skills such as lip sync, eye focus, breathing, posture, movement, and emotion to help make your characters come alive. Students will be standing and holding their arms up for extended periods of time, moving one's thumb separately from one's fingers, following one or two-step directions and learning to treat fragile puppets with respect. Students will also learn simple green screen shoot, including footage upload, green screen removal, and superimposing puppets into far-out environments. Bring puppets, dolls, or objects to play with, and learn to create movie magic in a professional studio.
By the end of the course, you will:
● have had 8 hours of instruction!
● have a basic understanding of how to make a puppet
● have the ability to bring a puppet to life
● understand how to develop character
● learn how to create a puppet script
