Puppet Building and Movement
Led by Katie Swider
In this exciting hybrid class, students will learn about puppetry arts and flex their creative muscles by creating their own puppets. Students will log into Google Classroom on Thursday or Friday to receive pre-recorded virtual instructions to build their own puppets. On Saturday morning they will join their classmates in-person for a hands-on lab to build large-scale puppets. The in-person portion of this class will take place at the CAP offices in Downtown Jacksonville.
This class requires the use of hot glue guns, scissors and/or a craft blade.
CAP will provide all supplies needed for this course.
Schedule: Jan. 29, Feb. 5, Feb. 12, Feb. 19, Feb. 16 and Mar. 5
Location: 207 N. Laura St. Suite 201, Jacksonville, FL 32202
