Parade Puppet Workshop for Kids at BRAHM Begins Today

Monday, Jan 4, 2016, 3:30pm to 5:00pm

10 / members, $15 / nonmembers

Create a wonderful puppet in this two day workshop (second date January 11) with Julie DelRosso and be part of the Winterfest Snowflake parade!

Puppets are an aspect of our history, from marionettes to the Muppets. In their many forms they have represented different customs and traditions and are valuable educational tools. Children can believe and relate to them, and puppets can provide an essential link between learning and play, which makes them wonderful teaching tools. They are also an interactive way to introduce narrative to even the most reluctant reader.

In this class, children will choose a character from a chosen folk tale, and construct their own, largescale puppets. They will get to breathe life into the puppets they build by animating their puppets in the Winterfest Snowflake Parade on January 30 2016 at 3 p.m.

Preregistration is required for this class, and participants ideally should be available to walk in the Snowflake Parade. For more information, phone: 828.295.9099.

Julie DelRosso is a local artist and mother who has worked in puppet and set design for stop motion animation in film and television productions. She earned a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, and she has worked on many art projects with children in a variety of media – from clay to animation. She believes in the power of art to inspire and affect young lives!
