No Class on Wednesday, May 15

Jump into the creative world of puppetry this winter at MAM! Your child will build new artistic skills, as well as work in teams to create and perform puppet shows at the end of the session. Techniques covered in this class will include sculpting with paper-mâché, painting and mixing colors, working with yarn, and even some simple hand-stitch sewing. Working collaboratively, we will construct and decorate a small stage for the puppet show made out of upcycled materials. By the end of the session, your child will have a completed one-of-a-kind puppet and have long-lasting memories. 

Families are invited to attend the last day of class to enjoy the puppet show!

This class will include a visit to MAM’s galleries during class time to learn from artists on view and be inspired.

Kristian Battell

Kristian Battell is an artist working and living in northern New Jersey, having recently completed her Masters of Fine Art at the School of Visual Arts in New York, NY. She always considered herself more of a traditional printmaker, having a BFA in Printmaking and Art of the Book from Purchase College, but the pandemic has shifted her practice to sculpture and installation. These sculptures focus on climate change and upcycling the materials that surround her in her everyday life. She loves bringing this practice to a wider audience, especially by teaching kids about our impact on the environment and the change we can make through art.
