COST: $25 / $20 Puppets at Night & Enthusiast Members

Learn how to turn colorful flat images into three dimensional live-action performances using pop-up scenery, paper puppets, simple angles, and more! Drawing inspiration from picture books, movies, or family pictures, each participant will make their own paper pop-up tableaux. Participants will see examples of this technique applied to a professional puppet production, and will learn how to modify the activity for all ages. A great class for crafters, teachers, visual artists, makers, and anyone who wants their holiday cards to be so much more.

Recommended for adults and teens. All experience levels welcome.
