What you'll learn in this kids crafts class:

What kinds of screens did we use for entertainment before TV's, computers, cell phones, and tablets? This traditional Chinese art form (also known as "Shadow Play") involves the use of puppets made in silhouette, their shadow-forms rear-projected onto a screen, thus hiding the puppeteer, and allowing the audience to be immersed into fantastic worlds.  Young artists will spend the week creating their very own stories and intricate moving puppet characters to tell their tale.  They will also explore traditional as well as modern takes on the medium while developing their own style.  During performances, students will work individually and collaboratively with others to bring their stories to life.
