Southwest Regional Summer 2017 ECE Puppetry

5-Day Puppetry Intensive  (The Puppet Boot Camp!)

June 23-27, 2017

Location:   Boulder, CO


Join us in Colorado for a 5 day early childhood puppetry intensive!


This serious puppetry immersion course is on how to create meaningful,

therapeutic, and magical puppetry for children 2-9.

It will be invaluable for teachers of kindergarten, early grades, preschool, childcare,

after care, home programs, children’s librarians,

therapists, speech pathologists, parents, homeschooling, and all who love children.


We will work on the wise art of the hand, and how enlivening puppetry supports the milestones of early childhood development.

A very popular puppet intensive, creative, practical, and loads of fun! This year’s dates are June 23-27 2017 – This year we will focus on the Art of the Rod Puppet, Protection Story Development, and bringing Therapeutic Breathing into story with marionettes that move in the element of ‘Air’ – lots of hands-on puppet making and story presentation, story voice, puppet gesture, and enormous fun! Register Early!!! numbers limited.

Along side the puppetry, we will work on our story voices and story development,

filling them with warmth, wonder, and healing archetype.

This is a very renewing,  joyful, useful, practical skill building week of puppet abundance!
