This class is an opportunity for children to have hands-on learning about animal life;
making animals come to life through their own creations. Children will make puppets/costumes using paper mache involving flour, water and salt, paper and masking tape. Animal skin interpretation will be done through tie dye using fabric dye and bed sheets. After that students will work with their puppets or costumes to animate the intended animal. We'll have opportunities to perform and especially to dance! All students will be welcome to participate in future performances of Animal Parade.
My primary years were filled with world travel exposing me to patterns and designs of all sorts from many cultures and religions. My second grade teacher wore saris everyday. On holiday we would travel up the Malaysian Peninsula where my mother visited a dressmaker who pinned and sewed a batik dress with folding and fans. I became of fan of origami and related arts of paper cutting and shadow puppets. In the summers of secondary school, I worked at our local YMCA camp in Augusta as an arts and crafts director, tie-dying hundreds of camp t-shirts. As a mother of four I used the process to do workshops at the local schools to demonstrate color theory. I studied printmaking at the University of Maine at Orono and continued my studies at Mass College of Art.
