SHADOW PUPPETS Online
Learn how art, ritual, and everyday life intertwine, and why we say everyone is an artist! Our slideshow and artifacts introduce traditional Indonesian shadow puppets before showing you how to create yours with card stock, scissors, hole punches, and your imagination. With only a light source and your puppet, your bedroom or living room wall is transformed into a perfect theater.
We'll draw an outline in profile, experiment with the concepts of positive/negative space, create movement, and a spontaneous theatrical experience.
