Children are naturally curious scientists, engineers, and problem-solvers. From an early age, they are eager to explore and invent, ask questions, and love to talk about what they find. Our mini maker classes foster these natural tendencies through active, focused exploration of objects, materials, and events, giving students lasting benefits for a lifetime understanding and love of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
Kindergarten Through 2nd Grade
3D Drawing Class
This class is for 1st & 2nd graders only.
(Fridays 2:45-4:15, 7 Week Course)
Students will learn 3D drawing and sketching so they will learn how to be aware and see the 3rd dimensional world around them. The new STEAM movement is the added ‘A’ (which stands for the Artistry of design and music) to STEM learning. Drawing and sketching is freeing to the creative spirit!
3D drawing skills empower children to realize their creativity whether it be character, product, environmental design.
3D drawing is also used in just plain communication – ‘A drawing is worth a thousand words!’
