First Sundays at RAM
with Nicole Cloeren and Puppets a la Carte
“Puppets Say What?”
Riverside Art Museum
3425 Mission Inn Blvd
Riverside, CA 92501
Free and open to the public. No registration required.
An important part of puppeteering is finding the right voice for a puppet – and an important part of a puppet show are the sound effects. Join us as Nicole's puppets help you play with the microphone and experiment with sound effects. We will explore these techniques through the New Mexican story "The Goat in the Chile Patch."
Nicole B. Cloeren is the founder and creative director of Puppets a la Carte where she uses puppets to feed the imagination. Emphasizing play and techniques of improvisation, she creates a space of surprise and wonder in which we all learn from one another through puppetry arts. Nicole is a Teaching Artist with the McCallum Theatre. She likes to pretend her PhD stands for doctor of puppet handling. When not talking with her hands – or to her hands – Nicole enjoys eating jicama, playing dice, camping, and spending time with her family.

Inlandia Institute is excited to announce a new comic book workshop for teens! Join cartoonist and illustrator NARCOMEY for a class that will inspire your creativity and clarify your focus. Sessions will be held on Zoom over six consecutive Fridays – March 31, April 7, April 14, April 21, April 28, and May 5, 2023 – from 3:30-5:00 PM PT.
During this 6-week workshop, NARCOMEY will walk you through the basics of comic book storytelling. This will be accomplished by working on a simple, 4-page comic book story. Focusing on one page per week – along with a Q&A – NARCOMEY wants participants to leave with four complete pages of comic book layouts/roughs. This workshop is about storytelling, not pretty pictures, so don’t worry if you can’t draw a stick figure. The basics are what every craftsperson falls back on, and NARCOMEY hopes this basic storytelling workshop will give you a strong foundation to build your craft on.
The workshop is free and open to teens ages 13-18, but registration is required. To register, please visit: https://tinyurl.com/ComicBookTeens.
