Summer 2023 Professional Development Courses Online

So happy to announce our Summer Pro-D Online courses for 2023!  They all have start dates and timeline, but you can work on them at your own best times.  I will always be available to you for all your sharings, questions, photos, videos, and will comment in supportive ways to help you toward your next steps in Puppetry!  You keep all my courses for later referral, sometimes it helps to watch a video again on gesture and movement, or make another puppet with a tutorial.  

Registration is now open!
