In this creative course students from all disciplines will be designing and producing their own large-scale animated sculptures, or “puppets”, (which will be featured in our fifth-annual FestiFools extravaganza to be held on Main Street in downtown Ann Arbor, at the end of winter term, April 3rd, 2011). As the originators of this artistic spectacle, students in this class will design, organize, and develop FestiFools in conjunction with local community and business partners. Early in the semester we will also work on the creation of large-scale animated characters for the Ann Arbor Symphony’s production of Peter and the Wolf (which will be performed at the Michigan Theater on November 14th 2010).

This will be a full ‘hands-on’ experience which will challenge students’ aesthetic assumptions while exploring techniques and tools for the making of large-scale theatrical scenery and sculptural elements. Although this course does not require any previous art experience, due to the public nature of the projects, it will be expected that the student already possess a great attitude, excellent work ethic, and the ability to grasp and apply aesthetic principles quickly, in a physically demanding, team oriented, public environment.

See http://festifools.org/ for more information.

This course satisfies LHSP course requirements for Fall 2010; however, this course is not limited to LHSP students.

There is a $150 lab fee to help defray the direct expenses for materials required for this course.

*Due to the nature and size of the creative projects, additional flexible Fri/Sat/Sun work hours will be scheduled.

Location: Our FestiFools Studio is located in the Campus Safety Services Building, 1239 Kipke Dr., Rm. # 1309, (just east of Crisler Arena).
