Planning the Ideal City

Benjamin (6 years old): "Playground Town"

Future City


The second project of the "Children Artists" series is called "Future City". In contrast with the "Finger Puppet Theater", the focus of this project is social. 

We met at 30th of May on Sunday at 2 p m S-Petersburg time and 4 p m Berlin time.

Step-By-Step Art Show

1. The Story

Choose the story that your child wants to act out. This might be a familiar fairy tale, or the child may want to invent their own, or they may simply want to invent characters and play with them freely. Younger kids generally don’t want to follow a script, and enjoy combining characters and other elements from different stories.

2. The Puppets

You can create your own puppets with your own unique style. 

Description of the “Puppet Theater Show”

We all know that the best way to learn is to do your own thing.

The "Children Artists" project proposes to the child not only to become an artist, a theater director and an actor, but also to show the result of their work at a real museum!

At our first show, kids built their own Puppet Theaters and produced small shows. Photographers and videographers documented their performances.
