Architecture & Design
(Grades 3-6, 6-9)

with Barbara Lilker

Design any type of structure and space you want! This class will explore the fundamentals of architectural design, both in drawing and model form. Students will be able to handpick what they would like to design and some of the materials that they would like to use, based on their interests and past experience in this course or other art-based classes. We will use 2- and 3-dimensional methods of representational drawings, scale models and collage in designing the student’s own spaces and structures. Each student will begin with an abstract concept for their specific design and end the term with a clear representation of that idea in drawing and scale model.
