I Love Frogs



These are shadows from my short piece "I LOVE FROGS!"
I was inspired to create this show while in Buoch, Germany


When I conduct my shadow programs with kids I start by performing this piece.  It links science & light units with art by bringing a frogs metamorphosis to life through paper cuts outs & shadows.  I like to then have the kids create their owns shadow puppets and perform them bringing classroom lessons to life in an educational and entertaining way!  I have done programs highlighting on both science and social studies curriculum.

GEMS School Program




This past March 2012, Sarah Frechette and Jason Thibodeaux conducted an Artist-in-Residency program at the Georgia Elementary School, VT.  They worked with 3rd & 4th graders creating original shadow puppet shows that combined Vermont History and Art. The students performed their final pieces for the entire elementary student body and their parents.

The presentation that was recorded by LCATV, click here

The program was made possible by grants from the Vermont Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts, Georgia Enrichment Program, Georgia Friends of the Arts, and the GEMS PTO and a donation of flashlights was provided by Energizer of St. Albans. We would also like to thank whoever provided the anonymous donation!
