|SMuppets is an interdisciplinary art venture. Over 20 weeks, students dynamically explored the relationship between visual arts and language arts with Puppetry as the principal theme. They engaged in hands-on workshops with professional puppeteers and writing sessions about scripting with teachers.
||Discover the philosophical underpinnings of SMASH: using real-world situations that connect to classroom studies, finding opportunities to apply theories, and embracing a culture of “freedom with responsibility” where cross-age mingling and learning occurs.
