Puppetry on Screen: Marvels of Media Workshop

Saturday, Dec 2, 2023 at 12:30 pm

Location: Digital Learning Suite

As part of the Marvels of Media initiative, autistic children and their families are welcome to join us for Puppetry on Screen. Instructed by Puppeteer in Residence Brian Carson this media workshop focuses on the making of a short video (from 30 seconds to one minute) that involves puppet characters talking or resolving a problem. You will bring a puppet character to life on screen, choose a green-screen background, and create a short film scene. You can bring your own puppet, and puppets will also be available for use. Recommended for kids ages 7–13 and their families.   

Free with RSVP.
