Creating Puppets

  • Creating Puppets with Zachary Green | Young Audiences New Jersey


Students learn the ancient art of puppet-making and performance as they create their own puppets to perform original or traditional stories. Zach Green guides students in crafting shadow, rod or hand puppets. Creating Puppets is an ideal workshop to integrate visual arts with theatrical performance.

Schools can choose to work with the artist for a single day to create puppets or multiple days to create a puppet performance. Giant papier-mache puppets can be made in a longer-term residency.
