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.
Participants will create observational drawings based on individually selected themes and objects in the museum. Students will create sketchbooks to use in the galleries and studios, experiment with a variety of drawing materials and styles, and complete several large-scale drawings for their portfolios. The group will discuss historical and contemporary art, examine professional artists’ portfolios, explore a variety of drawing techniques, and exercise individual and group critiques.
