Around Campus - The Art of Puppetry

Posted by Andy Cunningham on March 14, 2023 at 11:18 AM

Yesterday, students in Professor Sally Moore's The Art of Puppetry class work on various elements of their puppet. The course explores shape, form and movement as it relates to character, mood and atmosphere. The history of the art of puppetry from around the world is discussed through images, videos and readings. Students learn how to construct masks, shadow puppets, hand and rod puppets, and marionettes, and will work in groups to put on performances of folk tales from various parts of the world. Puppetry is also examined as a tool in education, therapy and advertising.
