The Puppetry Arts Institute is a non-profit organization, whose mission is to preserve and promote puppetry through education and entertainment for all ages. It’s a magical place for children, families and even adults to enjoy puppet shows, puppet painting workshops and other special events. The organization was established in May of 2000, as part of a dream of a group of local puppeteers and opened in the Englewood Arts District in October of 2001 to share this art form with the community.
