ARTIST IN RESIDENCY: GRADE 2 - HEART OF THE BEAST PUPPET THEATRE

We are thrilled to share with you the exciting experience our Grade 2 students recently had as part of the Artist in Residency program with the Heart of the Beast Puppet Theater. Thanks to the support of our school community and the dedication of the Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO), our students had the opportunity to immerse themselves in the enchanting world of puppetry.

Throughout this residency, our students were captivated by live puppet theater performances featuring different puppet forms. From marionettes to whimsical hand puppets, they witnessed firsthand the magic of storytelling brought to life through the art of puppetry. These performances not only entertained but also sparked the imagination of our students, inspiring them to explore the possibilities of puppet theater.

In addition to experiencing the wonder of live performances, our Grade 2 students actively engaged in hands-on workshops where they had the chance to create their own puppets. Under the guidance of the talented artists from the Heart of the Beast Puppet Theater, students explored different puppet styles, learned about various approaches to theater, and discovered innovative ways to bring a story to life through puppetry.

Through this creative process, students not only developed their artistic skills but also gained valuable insights into collaboration, storytelling, and the power of imagination. They embraced the opportunity to experiment with different materials, techniques, and puppet forms, allowing their creativity to flourish in a supportive and nurturing environment.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Heart of the Beast Puppet Theater for their invaluable contribution to our students' artistic development. Their passion for puppetry and commitment to arts education have left a lasting impression on our school community, and we are grateful for their work.

Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm for the arts at our school. Together, we can inspire and empower our students to explore, create, and dream big.
