The Tucson Waldorf School is opening its doors to give the public a look at its arts-based curriculum.
Children and parents listen as enrollment director Rebecca Briamonte discusses the Tucson Waldorf School, 3349 E. Presidio Road. Last Saturday's gathering also included a puppet play, which spotlighted the school's focus, integrating art, music, movement and hands-on learning into all subjects.
Teacher Nicole Williams helped with the puppet play, based on "The Little Boy who Wanted to be Carried Along All the Time."
A shepherd puppet, with animals, was part of the show. The felted wool creations were made by nursery teacher Andrea Fiser.
Mother-and-son puppets also were part of the performance. The show accented the school's creative learning focus.
The Tucson Waldorf School is hosting an Open House and Puppet Play at its Presidio Campus, 3349 E. Presidio Road on Saturday at 10 a.m.
