Architecture for Kids & Teens - Architecture 101 Holiday Workshop
Back by popular demand, Architecture 101 is pleased to offer the Holiday Workshop using all edible building materials including gingerbread and candies galore.
We will look at how people celebrate the winter season around the world, the similarities and unique differences, then design and build a seasonal village using what was learned and incorporating it into a holiday street scene.
At the end of the session, the students will be able to take home their holiday creations.
The following is the class schedule with a suggested age range. Because it is the holidays and a special time, siblings, friends and relatives are welcomed to participate in the same class. This workshop is about having fun and learning about cultural similarities along the way.
All classes will be held in the Phinney neighborhood.
The time for each workshop is 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM. The project will be completed by the end of the afternoon.
