Puppetry is one of the oldest art forms. It includes storytelling, performance, music, theater, dance, and most visual art forms. In fact, it has a little of everything, and that’s why I’m so excited to teach puppetry! In this class, our focus will be on stop motion animation. We will make basic paper puppets and then learn to do basic animation techniques using a stop motion app. We will make backdrop scenery, perform music, and do sound recording. We will screen our project on the final day.
