Larger Than Life Puppet Making (Ages 13–14) – NEW!
Ever want to build a puppet the size of a building? Do you love the planet and love using recycled goods to make art? Explore large scale puppetry with master puppeteer, director of All the Saints Theater Company, founder of Richmond’s Halloween Parade, and local artist, Lily Lamberta. We will make a 15 foot high papier-mâché puppet that takes eight people to operate. You’ll learn to use cardboard, boxcutters, staple pliers, bamboo and fabric to make street puppets for any parade, festival or celebration. Throughout the week, we’ll cover the whole process of making large scale puppets so you have the information and resources to continue being as a puppeteer. If you’re someone who always wants to be the builder, the sculptor, the sewer and the painter, then this class is for you! There’s no experience needed, but we’re seeking excited artists who want to expand their imagination!
- ArtVenture classes are confirmed two weeks prior to their start date.
