Puppets and Places at Abovoagogo

In Puppets and Places at Abovoagogo, we made puppets and a puppet theater, people, cars, houses and worlds. The emphasis of the workshop was on the relationship between art and play. It was exciting to watch the kids make objects that triggered their independent, imaginative play. Materials included plaster gauze, wooden shapes, toy wheels, cardboard, newspaper, paint, collage materials and lots of glue and tape.
