Help me give my students the fabric and foam needed to create professional Muppet-style puppets for use in our community.
My students are exceptionally diverse in all facets. Their common thread is a passion for theatre and we strive to give them the most fulfilling theatrical experience possible. These kids come from all over our geographic area because they are driven to achieve at a higher level right now in order to further their potential in the future.
The talent and passion my students possess rivals that of any professional in the theatre field.
They deserve the best I can give them.
My students learn many unique skills in our Costume & Makeup class: hand sewing, machine sewing, design, fabrication, character creation, facial transformations, and much more. They learn to think critically, rely on their own creativity to solve any problem that may arise, and to make things they've imagined real in the physical world. In the fall, they create a full costume in real size or miniature to demonstrate what they've learned in sewing and design. In the spring, they'll take it a step farther.
To condense their learning into one final project, my incredibly talented kids will create professional Muppet-style puppets.
They will create a unique character then bring it to life by sewing by hand and with a machine, designing facial features, fabricating movement mechanisms, and fine-tuning its visible personality. I will be teaching them methods I have learned from professionals in the field of puppetry including Sesame Street trainers and master builders to guide them into a product that will be a fitting conclusion to a year of creative learning.
My students just need this fabric and foam to create, learn and have fun. They have the ability and the will.
