After School

Show More

Open Hand would love to partner with any school or group for an after school program. Below we have a few examples of what we have done in the past. We are open to partnerships that will come up with new and exciting afterschool programs. 

Drop-in Mask & Puppet-Making Class

Learn about masks & puppets from other countries, make African style masks, Mardi Gras masks, many different puppets- birds, spaceships, bugs, elephants, Chinese dragons, airplanes, Santa, fantasy creatures, etc. 

Giant Puppet-Making and Presentation

Learn about masks & puppets from other countries, and an introduction to giant puppets, designing and constructing giant puppets of your choosing in teams of 2 or 3 (depending on continuity), writing a speech and presenting your puppet to a group. 

Acting, Improvisation and Performance

Learn basic acting skills through improvisation and script-reading, masks, and rehearsals. Students will perform a variety show before an audience. This class requires attendance weekly especially as the performance approaches.
