Marionettes (grades 3-7) Instructor: Ricki Bogin – Fee $325 ($350 after April 15)
By joining together a collection of found objects we will create new characters and bring them to life as marionettes.

The Disney animated film, Pinocchio is a well-known example of this. We will use a multitude of materials to create our puppets, including: wood, foam, wire, cardboard, cans, paper towel rolls, corks, string, fabric, photographs, etc. ( just about anything you can think of !)

Decorative Painting (grades 3-8) Instructor: Ricki Bogin – Fee $325 ($350 after April 15)
In this class students will design and paint permanent, decorative floorcloths, placemats and table runners on prepared canvas. These floorcloths, also known as “oylcloths” date back to 15th century early France where they used these canvas tapestries to cover cold stone floors. Early American settlers created floorcloths for their homes, and this was eventually replaced by what we now know as linoleum flooring. Students will customize their work using stencils and painting as well as carving their original designs to create patterns using erasers and easy-cut linoleum blocks for block printing. The result is a small, original, durable “carpet” easily cleaned and tough enough to withstand household commotion. We will also create individual cards and envelopes using our stencils and stamps.
