About the class: Join us in July for a week of bringing giants to life! Students will learn how to dream big and work with others to make their visions a reality. Participants will learn how to create huge characters using cardboard and other simple materials, and fuse it all together with the magic of paper mache. We'll cover every stage of building a giant puppet from design to painting.It all culminates in
a performance featuring our creations at the July Puppet Slam, 8:00 pm on July 23rd!
