Puppetry for Beginners

Ever wondered what goes into a production behind the scenes? In this brand new 5 week course, students will discover part of that magic through a deep dive into the Scenic Design process! They will learn how a designer “sees” and develops a point of view and explore how to shape and craft a landscape for a production.

The class will examine design functions, construction, painting, modeling, and installation. We will cover every facet of the design and construction process, and culminate in the actualized set for ATY’s final mainstage production of the season, The Search for Delicious!  Students of the course will be invited to a performance of the show to see the culmination of their hard work. 

Saturday, March 25th - Saturday, April 22nd
