ART INTENSIVE

TCK

MARCH BREAK 2020

Puppetry combines theatre arts, visual arts, and storytelling. It is a powerful learning tool to develop emotional and social skills. Puppetry improves communication skills; enhances a child’s feeling of self-worth; builds self-confidence; provides an acceptable way for children to express strong emotions, builds empathy; encourages teamwork and cooperation; improves critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and develops social interaction skills.

The Voice Leadership Camp will bring together 20 youth from Brampton during Spring Break 2020.   The youth will work together to create scripts, puppets, props, and sets for the production of a short performance. This intervention increases knowledge and provides youth with the tools to navigate difficult situations. Scriptwriting and puppet making gives youth an acceptable way to express themselves, teaches cooperation, empathy, self-regulation, and decision-making skills.
