Why Puppets?

Puppets, in all their shapes and sizes, are an amazing creative medium for children to explore their imagination.

Seeing the smiles on the children's faces when they have completed a puppet, is a beautiful experience to witness.

"His clear directions, thoughtful feedback, and enthusiasm for his craft helped nurture an imaginative space for our young artists to explore creative storytelling."

Through the creative process of making their own puppet, children are introduced to a new art experience, building their self-confidence, and finding positive methods of expression.

"The kids had a blast and were able to learn new art skills at the same time from you and your wonderful puppets."
