Biographical Info

Puppetry is an excellent yet often overlooked way for anyone to express creativity and imagination.  With a degree in Integrative Arts from Pen State University, professional puppeteer, Adam Swartz, will challenge students to understand and appreciate the many artistic mediums that work together in puppetry.  During the residency, students will create, using store-bought, gathered and/or recycled materials, either hand puppets (K-12) or marionettes (4-12), and be engaged in a discussion, acting exercises and, if applicable, script writing.  Each residency can be adapted according to current classroom studies, with virtually any area of study used as a focal point; and can culminate in an original performance for small or large audiences.
