Puppet-Making Workshop with Kenneth Lewis Sr

January 13 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm


Learn the art of puppet making with Ewing-based artist and ACP Artist-in-Residence Kenneth Lewis.

Workshops include scriptwriting, backdrop design, puppet construction — all the essentials to the success of a full puppet production.

In the first workshop, participants will be introduced to several methods of handmade puppets and begin to create a backdrop that will fill a puppet booth constructed by Lewis.

The following three workshops will be dedicated to puppet creating, script writing and working toward a final presentation.

Don’t miss your chance to work with such an energetic and talented artist! Students under the age of 14 must register with an adult. Program recommended for ages 7+.

About Kenneth Lewis Sr:

Lewis is primarily a painter and simultaneously works on many different subject series. Currently, his interests include theHarlem Renaissance, abstracts, landscapes, and portraits — his studio is full of hundreds of paintings.

While Lewis is a prolific painter, he also works in mixed media, painting on doors, tarps, fabric, canvas, walls and found objects. Lewis worked as a house painter and property manager for many years before becoming a self-taught artist at the age of 47 and has since generated thousands of paintings. Lewis hosts public painting sessions in his Ewing studio, curates art shows at his local Starbucks, and offers Trenton area children free art making sessions, serving as a tremendous opportunity to give back to his community. Learn more.
