Puppetry is an art form which combines storytelling, drama, visual art and sculpture.
Children will be introduced to different forms of puppetry, guided in choosing and writing a story,
supported in constructing puppets, props and scenery, and “directed” as they prepare to
present their puppet plays on the last day of class.
This class will be a wonderful opportunity to collaborate with others as each child discovers and
develops strengths to contribute to the project.

Susan Box I have worked with children for many years and in many capacities, everything from Children’s Library resident artist to Early Childhood Educator and from Children’s Art Teacher to Puppeteer and Storyteller. My work with children has given me a great appreciation for the amount of learning that takes place during children’s exploration and play.
My favorite quote (by S. G. Clemens) gets to the heart of the matter: “Art has the role in education of helping children become like themselves instead of more like everyone else”
As a children’s art teacher I am constantly delighted by children’s ability to enjoy the process of making art and by the individuality of their explorations and discoveries.
I have three goals when working with children.
1. to create an environment where mistakes are seen as opportunities, where each child’s individuality is accepted, the group dynamic is respected and where the atmosphere is one of encouragement and support.
2. for everyone to enjoy splashing around and mucking about, to partake in silliness, to cause and join in laughter and to have so much fun they never want to leave.
3. There will be processes tried, mistakes braved, fears conquered, friends found, and lots of art created!
