I’m Karen Konnerth. I create magical, extraordinary things – like world traveling puppet theater and award winning arts in education programs for imaginative innovators, like you. And I write and illustrate books for children.
I’ve been honored to offer performances as well as workshops for educators and for children at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington DC, for the U.S. Embassy English Language Specialist program in Costa Rica, Brunei, Indonesia, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and Oman, and in stunning cities and remote villages in Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Argentina, Guatemala, Italy, and India. I earned the Puppeteers of America 2011 Marjorie Batchelder McPharlin Award for Contributions in the Field of Education. Also initiated and directed the puppetry component of the Teen Docent Program at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, awarded a 2015 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award.
