July 29, 2024 - August 2, 2024

5 Days

9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Taught by Ike Huntley

Join us for a fun-filled week of puppetry! Campers will learn a variety of different styles of puppetry – both construction and performance. As students gain new skills, they will be encouraged to apply them however they choose to create unique puppets that align with their own creativity and interests. Campers will work with cardboard, paint, glittery embellishments and much more! Campers should bring a drink and snack.
