The thesis is an auto-ethnographic study of the author's journey to use puppetry arts as a mode of personal expression. It documents the process of developing; rehearsing; building puppets, props and stage; and performing a puppet performance. The thesis also includes primary source research obtained from an interview with professional puppeteer, Monica Leo, of Eulenspiegel Puppets. The author also describes and reflects upon her experiences teaching an enrichment course on puppetry arts to elementary students. The research highlights ways that puppetry arts can affect students' learning and reflects on its place within the field of art education.
