Vietnamese Water Puppets
Dear Art Educators,
I am taking some more time to browse the site I posted earlier. Now I just
have to have one of the antique water puppets (maybe a fish for Christmas? -
Here is more information on Vietnamese Water Puppets (no images):

Lesson plan (lino cut lesson based on water Puppets - see notes)
I can see many opportunities for a lesson....maybe some paper mache puppets
painted with acrylics - then clear coated with gloss medium to water proof.
Your puppets wouldn't have to be used on water.
If anyone takes off with the lesson on art/folk art of Viet Nam - Please
post to the list. I want to put your lesson on Incredible Art Department.
Take a look at the other art and folk art on this site
http://vietnamese-artwork.com/. I will add links from my site on (give me
some time before you check for the link):
I am not selling art here- just ideas (smile).
