*NEW for 2017* Puppetry is the focus for this year’s performing arts major. We are thrilled to announce that Adam Zimmerman (aka “Eccentric Adam”) will be visiting as a guest artist to guide campers as they take a puppet character all the way from conception to reality.
The puppetry major program will include:
- character concept sketching
- puppet fabrication using a variety of techniques and materials
- puppet manipulation skills
- preparation of a script
- use of our new puppet theatre for a final presentation
Instructor: Adam Zimmerman has been a featured entertainer at the Puppets Up! festival since it’s inception. With a degree in Theatre from the University of Ottawa as well as Certification in the Art of Clown from Advanced Studies – USA Virginia, he is a talented and versatile performance artist with skills in clowning, circus, balloon sculpting, puppeteering, music, and more. Adam is currently working on a new puppet production featuring giant mechanical dinosaurs.
That’s just the tip o’ the iceberg! Read about the rest of our majors here.
