SA Kids: My Public Art and Design @ McCanny Secondary School
Jul 29 @ 10:00 – Aug 1 @ 13:00

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
My Public Art Design is a fun and engaging, yet practical, introduction to architecture, design and community building. Using scale 3-dimensional materials, students can use to design and build all types of architectural models. Each student is offered the opportunity to collect their own personalized menu by choosing 20-30 pieces from a series of preselected design elements with an array of colours, textures, and shapes. As a good introduction to architecture, it’s an exercise that challenges the understanding of scale and experience through space and time. It develops fine motor skills by manipulating varied materials and builds skill in conceiving an idea in the abstract and transferring an idea into a tangible piece of architecture.

Participants are asked to bring:
— pair of scissors
— glue stick
— sketchpad with white pages
— graphite and pencil crayons
— phone camera (if possible)

*Please note that this is a WORKSHOP SERIES and that participants who would like to attend are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED TO REGISTER AND ATTEND ALL sessions of the workshop*
