In our residency, students make puppets, create skits and perform their shows! Our goal is for students to experience a complete creative arc (envision – create – practice – perform) in a condensed period of time. Teachers gain experience working with puppetry in the classroom and our skit writing method. Students are creatively empowered and …. everyone takes home a puppet!
We have had great success in conducting and writing Mass Cultural Council STARS Residencies. Please contact us to explore possibilities.
A unique aspect of our residencies is that we bring TWO experienced artists/educators to you your program!
Jonathan Keezing (puppeteer/proprietor) is a working artist (since 1991) whom has honed his craft with teaching in schools, hundreds of workshops/residencies, and countless performances. Karen Schumer, (puppeteer/education director) taught middle/elementary/special needs art full time for 17 years before joining Caravan Puppets.
Together, we have woven a team teaching style which has made for relaxed, focused, inspired and happy classrooms.
