Creative Remix 1-Magnetic Puppetry

Hello friends of the MoNA and lovers of naïve art! I bring to you a series of kids art that were created at the CREATIVE REMIX summer workshop that I facilitated at the Roundhouse Arts and Recreation Centre in Vancouver. The kids were ages 5 to 10.

I bring you 6 art-ivities from the workshop:

  • Magnetic Puppetry
  • Flying Superheroes
  • Spin Art
  • Monoprinting
  • Outdoor Mandala
  • Painting with Fabric

     

We begin with MAGNETIC PUPPETRY:

  1. Two or more animals that would not normally meet, are stranded on a tropical beach…what will they talk about?
  2. Colour, cut and attach magnet to your paper animal puppet
  3. Create a dialogue between the animals
  4. Present dialogue to class and animate your magnetic puppets on the mini stage provided.

You can see the magnet attached to the back…

A bear and an octopus ..hmmm u have to wonder what they might talk about?

The kids each held a magnet to control their paper puppets.

How about a kangaroo and a dolphin — “G’Day Mate!”

How about an elephant, a pelican and a moose? What could they possibly talk about?

Here’s a giraffe and a turtle, crossing paths on a sandy beach.

Magnets are tricky to use. However with some practice, the children enjoyed controlling the animal-puppets behind the backdrop and performing before the class.
