For youth ages 12-15
(This is a 10 sessions class)
In this class you will combine creative ideas with mechanisms to build a moving sculpture that can be a toy, a decorative table piece, or a whimsical carousel. We will explore various types of motions and how to build mechanisms to bring movement and life to these automata. With instructor guidance, in this two week class, you can build a mechanized automaton.
There will be a Materials Fee of $30 added at the time of registration.
