Not sure if there are still openings!
This weekend, learn how to build a large-scale puppet in a two-day workshop at the Central Arkansas Library System’s (CALS) Children’s Library and Learning Center (4800 W. 10th Street). The free workshop is Friday, June 21 and Saturday, June 22 at 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. each day.
Participants will build puppets up to 40 feet which require three to 20 people to operate and can be used in parades and theatre. Workshop attendees will learn how to make puppets with materials such as PVC pipe, wire, paper mache, fabric, clay, cardboard, recycled materials and more. A variety of puppets will be constructed, involving moveable parts, wings and long, undulating bodies.
The workshop will be conducted by Jo Ann Kaminsky, an Arkansas native who is a licensed professional counselor, board-certified art therapist and registered play therapist.
Registration is required. The workshop is limited to 30 participants ages 8 and up. Attendees are expected to participate in both days of the workshop.
