My background & experienceYour teacher: With more than 15 years' experience in the early childhood education and not-for-profit sectors, Douglas brings a wealth of knowledge to alternative learning practices through visual, puppetry, and theatre arts. Douglas is a passionate artist, puppeteer, puppet maker, educator, producer, and community outreach facilitator for early childhood learners, school aged children, families, seniors, care-givers, educators, and parents. Learning through nature, mindfulness, puppets, play and fun, Douglas’ ultimate goal is to turn everyone into a puppeteer because puppeteers, if you didn’t know, are pretty awesome. What students need: An open mind and willingness to escape into creativity for an uplifting experience that is different and part of a safe space for natural expression.
My classes and teaching styleThrough mindfulness, social awareness, and the human equation, participants will engage in creative exercises that explore and discover better ways to communicate, listen, and share with personal communities whether, family, school, work, or friends. This experience is excellent for anyone that would like to learn better engagement through creativity and puppetry arts. Participants will learn how to take an inanimate object and bring it to life to teach and engage audiences in a different way that will capture their attention beyond the moment. Learn how to plant life lesson seeds in a way that your younger learners won’t even realize that they’re learning because the experience is fun and inviting.
