Fostering creativity

Colorful paper puppet bats and butterflies made of construction paper and decorated with stickers, markers, and more paper.

We recently did a paper puppet workshop with a group of refugee children in Clarkston. They were so sweet and worked so diligently to decorate their bats, butterflies and people using stickers, markers, and cutting up construction paper for clothes, accessories, etc. They produced the most creative puppets out of such simple materials that I had to share them!

Bring Piccadilly Puppets to your town with a Vibrant Communities Grant!

grantWould you like to bring Piccadilly Puppets to your school, library or non-profit organization in Fall 2018 or Spring 2019? If your organization is located in a county in which no organization received an FY18 GCA Project, Partner or Arts Education Grant, you can apply for a Vibrant Communities grant from the Ga Council for the Arts. The grants are for arts programming; why not have us do puppet shows and/or workshops?
