CLASSES FOR YOUTH
Saturday, October 9, 10 am - 12:30 pm
Fanciful, Zany or Scary
Halloween-inspired Puppets Sock and Shadow Puppets
Instructor: Dani Iris
What will you be for Halloween? Younger children will love to create a personalized sock puppet. - be it a tiger, a ghost (friendly or scary), a super hero, or a creature from the deep. A little paint on their own faces, and the children become co-actors in a storyline from their imaginations.
Older kids may prefer to build jointed shadow puppets, although sock puppets are for everyone!
Teacher-helpers will be on hand to guide little hands to safely glue, tie, and sew puppets with personality! Experienced makers are encouraged to attempt more challenging skills to give shape, dimension, and life to their creations. Parents, are welcome to stay and help younger artists, but the children will also be well supervised.

Lanterns and Mobiles
Capture the feeling of Fall
Instructor: Brenda Gariepy
Students will reproduce natural colorful leaves using printmaking techniques, adjusted for age and ability. More experienced artists will cut their own templates, print on handcrafted paper, and assemble and embellish a lantern to hang or sit on table or shelf. Younger artists love to stamp out leaf designs, then cut them out and dangle to make a wire mobile. All ages will master an age-appropriate level of hand-printing and 3-D design to produce decorations they will be proud to share with their families.
