Marionette Making in Art Class

Art with Rhonda is a favorite class for the majority of MSMS! I mean, who doesn't love the carefree, funny, creative Rhonda who leads this class? Each year in Art class there is a list of projects to complete that year. For 7th graders, making a marionette puppet is on that list. There is a step-by-step process that you must complete to have your puppet be a success! Here are a couple of the basic steps:
1) Sketch a life-size drawing of your puppet, with color!
2) Use clay to create the feet, hands, and head
3) Use foam to create the body of the puppet
4) Attatch the feet, hands, heady, and body together
5) String your puppet together

This is the packet of directions:
