Artist Dan Fenelon (aka Mr. Dan!) will be running two online after school programs in December! Students will be taught step by step processes for making puppets that can be used for future story making and set making workshops to create their own folktale puppet show. K through grade 2 students will make finger puppets and hand puppets, while students in grades 3–6 will make marionette puppets.

Puppets will be created using household items and craft supplies. A list of supplies needed for the workshop are listed below. These will need to be provided by each household and made ready for the day of the workshop.


Cost of the workshop is $20.00 per child and workshops will be limited to 15 students. Since this workshop is PA sponsored, money can be paid directly to the PA. Sending money via Venmo/Paypal/Zelle is preferred, however cash/checks can also be sent to school and made payable to Ilana Radcliffe or Megan Clark. We expect this to be popular so please sign up ASAP!
