Instructors: Stacey Holloway, Assistant Professor of Sculpture,
Heather Holmes, Studio Technician & Sarah Heath, Instructor of Sculpture

Description: Light can change our understanding of a form by affecting our emotions, enticing us or creating mystery. Not only can it alter a three-dimensional form, but it can even become a sculptural medium itself. Highlights and shadows are produced whenever applied to a three-dimensional surface and these variations, or values, become our primary means of perceiving space. Puppetry can take many forms, but all share the process of animating objects. There are many different forms of puppetry (around since 3000 BC) within different cultures that take place in a variety of environments (festivals, plays, carnivals, parades, movies & TV, parties, and many other ritualistic settings). Within these environments, a scenic design is usually constructed to aid in the storytelling. In this workshop, each participant will experiment with creating a narrative through the use of light & shadow. Each will create their own individual shadow puppet character(s) and then we will create a larger narrative using the different characters produced.
