Orran Scruggs is a local artist/creative originally from Huntsville, AL. Mr. Scruggs practices in several styles of art: paint, ceramics, jewelry making and woodworking. Orran’s mantra is “create every day” and he has been creating and making things for over 30 years. He has a passion for his community and is heavily involved with many community programs in the Wiregrass Area. Orran will be giving the WMA kids a shadow puppet workshop beginning in February. Orran began his work with shadow puppetry while trying to create visuals for a documentary. He quickly learned that this is an easy way for anyone of any age to be able to tell a story. In this workshop, he will give the students the basics of creating characters, giving them movement, and telling a story through shadow puppetry.
