Spend a week creating a world with puppets! From finger puppets to shadow puppets, explore different types of puppetry and experiment with soft sculpture and mixed media. Participants will learn about character development and set design, while learning mechanics, lighting, and production methods such as stop-motion animation and videography. 

Our Artist’s Studio Experience offers 6th-12th graders the opportunity to work with a local practicing artist from a specialized field of fine art. Participants will discover art techniques used throughout history, learn about art terms and artists specific to the week’s theme, and create their own works of art. Each week, participants will also see examples of the teaching artist’s portfolio and have the opportunity to converse about art careers, portfolio development, and the vast applications of art. Magnet school students may work toward completing summer art requirements and all participants will work to build an art portfolio. A great summer experience for young artists!

For additional information, please call 410-547-9000, ext. 300.
