Fox & Owl FREE Virtual Workshop | Fox Festival 2020
Join us for a FREE collaborative arts workshop where your creativity will be on screen for the whole community to see! You’ll learn how to use simple puppets to tell a story. Your story can simple or complex; it can have a message (such as "protect the environment") or it can merely entertain. It can take place in your own back yard, in the past or future, or in a completely imagined world.
Our expert puppeteer Sara Peattie will help you develop character and plot ideas, build props or a tiny theater to make your adventure amazing. Your work will be featured in the Arlington Commission for the Arts' Fox & Owl Tiny Film and Photo Festival in August!
You will be asked to complete some simple activities in advance of the workshop and share your ideas with the group. Participants are encouraged to make a 1-minute video that will be included in the Arlington Commission for the Arts’ Fox & Owl Tiny Film & Photo Festival in August. This is part of the annual Fox Festival, a puppet parade reinvented for safe socially distanced activity to do at home; workshop co-sponsored by Arlington Center for the Arts and Arlington Commission for Arts & Culture.
