This project is an introduction to figurative work and play by creating stick puppets using cardboard shapes and a variety of collage materials. The children will explore ways to create images out of simple shapes in 3D using recycled materials to symbolize people and animals; and are used in dramatic play.
Overlap – to put one shape over the other.
Texture – the structure, feel, and appearance of something such as rough, smooth, bumpy, shiny.
Figurative – representing a figure in art; people animals.
