Instructor: Stefanie Loeb
This camp will utilize traditional techniques to construct large scale puppets for the 2020 4th of July Parade in Sonoma. Led by professional puppet builder and visual arts teacher Stefanie Loeb, students will use their imagination, along with the tools provided, to create and build their puppet characters based on the parade theme. Clay, fiber, 2D elements and daily movement sessions will help students’ puppets come to life.
The deadline for enrolling in this class is June 24; the class may be cancelled if we do not reach minimum enrollment by this time.
