Puppet Lab 

A NEW after school enrichment class for ages 9-12.
Next sessions start Fall 2018 - Fill out a PUPPET LAB INTEREST FORM today!

Do you love making things the world has never seen? Discovering the hidden qualities of materials? Taking things apart to see how they work? Then we want YOU for Puppet Lab!

Puppet Lab is a new after school program for kids age 9-12 with a focus on the materials, engineering, and design side of puppetry arts. Each week we’ll tackle creative challenges in a fun, hands-on, and supportive environment that encourages experimentation. We’ll bravely go beyond simple craft projects to learn advanced tools, techniques, and topics in 3D design. Kids will learn by doing, gain confidence in their abilities, and discover new strategies for solving interdisciplinary problems.
