Pick up any art book on Paul Klee’s artwork and you will be hard pressed to find any information on the hidden wonders of his finger puppets! After making his son Felix a finger puppet for his birthday Paul Klee went on to make him fifty more. They are primitive and were created in the Punch and Judy style.
So just like Paul Klee, Kylie's group are going to explore puppetry, but are going large. You know what they say, bigger is better, and just as Paul Klee loved to work with plaster you will too.
Join Kylie in exploring primitive puppetry by one of the world master’s hidden secrets.
You will explore techniques in building simple armatures that you will be able to do with your students whilst also allowing students to extend themselves and work individually. These techniques can also be adapted to other motifs. This is an engaging and fun lesson, you will walk away with a smile on your dial. Art glee with Klee!
