Beginning of the puppet workshop, Update #7 "Puppets in the community PROJECT"

Hi Steemians

Beginning of the puppet workshop, Update #7 "Puppets in the community PROJECT"

Welcome to this seventh update of the Puppets in the community project aimed at training children in the wonderful and magical art of puppet theater, as well as Blockchain education and ecological education.

I had to make some adjustments in the calendar of activities, postponing some activities related to theatrical exercises to start making the puppets, it seems to be the most motivating part that children find in the workshop, choosing their own plastic bottles, accumulating other materials such as white paper, newspaper, and bits of cloth to start making their own dolls as soon as possible is something that really excites them.

So, without thinking twice, I wisely decided to move forward to the schedule so that the children could give free rein to their imagination. At the moment we are in the first phase of the manufacturer that is the one of sticking the paper to the plastic bottle in order to go lining and detailing little by little the factions that will have each puppet, for it I have resorted to some explanations related to proportions of the human body adapted to the caricatures, giving to understand that for being dolls we can exaggerate the features as commonly they are done in the caricatures.

One of the things that I have highlighted the most are the autochthonous roots, Venezuela is a country that for 500 years has suffered a lot of cultural ethnic transformations, the Spanish settlers brought captured as slave animals from Africa, which at first were slaves who were destined to replace the aborigines who were practically exterminated, African slaves in the American continent served to build and maintain the cities that were growing by leaps and bounds, but not everything was slavery they also brought with them their African culture and this was mixed in less than 100 years with the Spanish roots and the few aboriginal roots, which resulted in the richest intercultural mix I have ever been able to appreciate.

Although we also have cultural problems that have affected the population that has been losing part of its identity, for example, the children told me that they wanted to make puppets inspired by superheroes of American culture, that is where my work as a cultural educator comes in to guide them to design and be inspired by the cultural roots so rich in mixture that we have and after a little sincerity in the subject understood that it was much better to try to highlight the features of our African, European and aboriginal mixture.

We have also talked about ecology and how we can transform simple bottles of plastic and paper that are destined for garbage into real works of art.

After finishing the heads of the dolls I will continue with the classes of projection, diction, and discussion of the final script for the work based on the blockchain, the days pass fast and the children are so eager to learn and continue making their puppets that at the end of the hours established for the workshop they want to stay until later to continue working on their project, in less than 2 days they already feel the project as something very intimate and that gives life to the community, all talk about the project and want to participate more children than I had estimated.

In short, everything seems very fabulous to me and I'm still excited. I will continue informing in the next updates as is the course of this project that began as a simple idea that I wanted to share in the community of steemit and today has become a reality thanks to mass funding with which this community has benefited.
