Session Seven: Tell Me a Story
Learn about character, setting, and plot by exploring narrative objects in Crocker's collection, including illuminated manuscripts and traditional Native American storyteller dolls. Enjoy a visit from a special guest artist who will give you a behind-the-scenes glimpse into theatrical puppetry. Delve into the art of storytelling by crafting an original puppet show with your fellow campers. At the end of camp, you will present your puppet show for the public and for your parents and guests.
