Description

Architecture in the most extraordinary place is the topic of this course where young designers develop ideas, plans, drawings and models for an arboreal dwelling (that's a treehouse!). The process starts with consideration for the site, which is the tree itself. Students are introduced to the plant science that might suggest a tree species ideal for structural enhancement. While they're laying the foundations, kids learn how to manipulate space, materials and style through exercises that combine drawing and thinking, making, and the scale model reality of a fantasy treehouse.

Description

Join us to act up, act down and act around in this performance class for children. It is the art of taking words -- from music lyrics, newspapers, textbooks, poems, letters, journals and even recipes -- to create a collaborative experiment in theater. Young performers can expect lessons in mime, movement and monologue and the opportunity to improvise and interact with their classmates. Parents can expect that their child will return invigorated by exchange and a new outlet for their energy.

Description

Cartoon animals come in all shapes and sizes: some are four-legged, furry or feathered; others wear top hats, monocles or diapers. They strut on two legs or crawl on all four, and some even have eight arms at their disposal! Some behave like humans (Squidward, Hello Kitty and Brian Griffin), and some less so (Bambi and Thumper), but they all fascinate us and are perfect characters through which to tell a story. In this drawing course, students learn to cartoon animals, creating their stories and giving them personality that will have them hopping off the page. The instructor first introduces some classic animal characters. Then, using simple drawing tools and techniques, students follow along to create their own unique critter creations.

With the spirit of mixed-media madness, they'll play and create a collaborative circus environment from their imaginations. From mythological creatures and characters to high-wire balancing contraptions, they'll draw, design and build a circus environment using a wide variety of materials both conventional and nontraditional.

Description

In the fantastically popular game Minecraft, gamers are able to create and explore expansive worlds made entirely from digital cubes and, in the process, create what they need to navigate this built universe. Students in this course follow in the footsteps of Steve and assume the roles of character designer, architect, geological surveyor and engineer as they design and build the components of a new (non-digital) world and the architectural components, tools and equipment necessary to live there. Scenario play, discussion and interaction with classmates provide rich opportunities for creative problem solving and expression as they draw, paint, sculpt and refine their emerging world.
