puppets+puppet theaters+pocket books

I've had the pleasure of creating puppets with a 
great group of children in an after school program. 
 We started with canvas puppets, sharpie and paints. 
Added wooden features and canvas hairdos. 
The theaters are a favorite combo of oil pastel / watercolor resist
 on cardboard with more painted cardboard and wood shapes 
The cherry on top was the puppet pocket book,
 illustrated books about the puppets.

summer ART wouldn't be complete with out puppets!  
We start off with paper mache, wait a day and then we paint.  
Topped  off with beads, yarn, baubles and tissue. 
The selection of materials is always different depending
 on our mood and what tempts us.
 I love how they progress into characters filled with personality and vivre! 
There's something about this line up that cracked us all up.
AND we all need a little more of THAT!

beehive kids and their puppets

I took many many  photographs of this great group of kids, 
their mission was to crack me up with their expressions.   
We just completed an 8 week class, 
just in time to add finishing touches to their puppets. 

I also really like the way the puppets look before paint. 
Cardboard and newspaper.  Simple.

puppet love

We're creating the best 
bunch of puppets EVER!  
We measured, cut, snipped and glued 
hair, hairdo's and faces today. 
how I love puppets 
at the studio. 
It's like having a whole 
new batch of friends, 
paper mache style.
