Designing workshops
for children

With an BFA in Sculpture and another degree in Art History, Marilyn Price created all her puppets with many purposes in mind: to help tell the story, to make the audience aware of their own creativity and to utilize any and all objects that seem to be lying around the house. Nothing is safe! Cartons, boxes, old clothes, new clothes, hardware, feather dusters, kitchen equipment ... the list is endless! Marilyn often works with children in schools, camps and museums, to create puppets with even the youngest of children. For example, Streganona, the Italian folk hero, comes to life for young children, starting with ... a pasta box! Puppets and programs can be customized to meet a theme or curriculum goal.

Skills for the corporate
and not for profit world...
the story revisited
The only power point in this non-technical workshop is the power of the story in creating a positive atmosphere in various corporate or professional communities. Using exciting and stimulating workshops, seminars, and master classes, Marilyn trains a wide variety of audiences in the tools of listening and story telling skills and illustrates why they are vital, important and necessary elements in today’s charitable and business worlds. “Personalized” to fit any venue or audience (for-profit and not-for-
profit corporations, volunteers and professionals, educators and clergy), Marilyn teaches through exercise and example and always story. The array of materials she utilizes makes her program dynamic, practical, and ready for immediate use. An exciting key note speaker, she takes care to tailor all her work to fit the occasion with effective background material and her usual touches of wit and wisdom.
