Shadow Theatre in Schools

ShadowLight began a Shadow Theatre residency at Buena Vista Horace Mann. #shadowtheatre  

Today, students discovered the traditions of Shadow Theatre and spent time creating observational drawings of puppets from around the world with Teaching Artist Caryl Kientz. 

What is observational drawing?
Observational drawing is exactly what it sounds like: drawing by observation.  By simply looking at the subject and drawing what is presented to the eye, the student gains solid perceptual skills and hand-eye coordination.
