SA Kids: My Public Art and Design
McCanny Secondary School, 1051 McNicoll Ave, Scarborough, ON M1W 3W6
1051 McNicoll Ave, Scarborough, ON M1W 3W6, Canada
My Public Art and Design is a fun and engaging introduction to architecture, design, and community building. Using three-dimensional materials, students will design and build all types of architectural models. Participants will choose 20-30 design pieces from a collection of pre-selected design elements that have different colours, textures, and shapes.
The workshop is an exercise that challenges participants' 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 the idea into a tangible piece of architecture.
This workshop is open to kids of all ages, but is most suitable for kids aged 9 to 15.
Participants are asked to bring:
a pair of scissors
sketchpad with white pages
graphite and pencil crayons
phone camera (if possible)
*PLEASE NOTE: This is a workshop series. Participants are highly encouraged to register and attend ALL sessions of the program.*
