In collaboration with Puppet Showplace Theater, the School of Visual Arts, College of Fine Arts and BU Arts Initiative, we’re excited to welcome puppeteer Tarish Pipkins, a.k.a. Jeghetto, to Boston University from November 4-10, 2018.

Bringing Puppets into the Special Ed Classroom

Tarish Pipkins is an artist, performer, and educator with many years of experience in the classroom supporting students with special needs and emotional and behavioral challenges. Join him for a discussion of why puppets work and a hands-on session to learn about approaches to using the "high art of puppetry” to build social skills and foster success in school. This workshop is open to anyone.
