Participants will collaborate in the creation of a host of puppets and banners which will be part of the 2019 Fiesta celebrations to be held in May 2019. Puppets will include large-scale processional figures as well as hand puppets to be made in paper mache, painted and festooned. Projects will include individual as well as collaborative creations, all of which will be showcased at the Fiesta. Individual projects will be available for participants to take home at the end of the school year, collaborative ones will become part of High Meadow’s puppet library and available for future use.
