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 eighth-annual FestiFools extravaganza to be held on Main Street in downtown Ann Arbor on April 6th, 2014. (See: FestiFools.org) As the originators of this artistic spectacle, students in this class will design, organize, and develop FestiFools in conjunction with local community, civic, and business partners. Early in the academic term we will also work on the creation of stage sets for a community theater production of "Hello Dolly".

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 for the creation of large-scale public spectacles. 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 an excellent work ethic, great attitude, and the ability to grasp and apply aesthetic principles quickly, in a physically demanding, team oriented, community-minded environment.

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

Studio/lab work outside of course will be individually tailored to students’ schedules (on first day of class).

Lab Fee $150
