And the beat goes on . . .

Sorry for my absence from my blog.  I promise to be better and to stay on track.  Here are a few updates:

  • June – I taught a two-week enrichment course to children in second-fourth grade.  We made puppets, masks, scenery, rehearsed, and performed “Where the Wild Things Are.”
  • June – I took a week-long intensive puppet making workshop at the Owl Glass Puppetry Center in West Liberty.  Monica Leo is the best!
  • August – performed a Batman puppet show at Eliott’s five year old Batman birthday party.
  • September – Started two new jobs.  Supervising art education student teachers as a graduate assistant and teaching elementary art at a private school.
  • September – performed “Bony Legs” at the Children’s Festival in West Liberty.

Goals for the new school year:

  • Have fun and make time to make art and work on puppetry.
  • Make more art with my kiddos.
  • Try to book a performance every month or two.
  • Survive teaching elementary art!
  • Paint the tree house – we have already stained it.
  • Finish my master’s thesis on puppetry arts and education.
  • Make an art studio in the basement – get rid of junk in the basement.
  • Do a puppetry workshop or performance at Eliott’s school.
  • Work on some pieces related to “Bony Legs”/fairy tales for the Art Ed. Graduate Show.
  • Spend more time crafting with my Crafternoon sisters.

Whew!  That’s a list.  We’ll see what I get through. . .
