Puppets

 

Giant Puppets!    Bigger than Life!

Twenty Foot puppets will get your attention........

 

MMasks and puppets are prevalent in many cultures around the world. Large scale puppets are larger than life which generates imagination and connect people to something greater than themselves. Building large art pieces can lift one’s esteem through the process of creating and performing at a festival or pageant. Most of the materials used in the large scale puppets are recycled which model how "to make something out of nothing."

 

People creating the puppets and masks will learn skills in:

• cooperation
• group problem solving

Participants will develop art skills in:

• 3-D design
• sculpture
• painting
• sewing
• woodworking skills

Visit the Puppet gallery and be sure to view the quick movie.

The puppets were built by the community in workshops sponsored by Lynn Miller and ETC in Pennsylvania and Switzerland.
