Over 6 meetings, kids will learn about architecture and it’s relationship to art – towards making their own city! This is an expansion course and will include new aspects such as sustainability and livability, along with more detailed presentational materials. Kids will experience city planning, model making (using free downloadable templates), and art making processes such as drawing, painting, collage – to create a city model using art and design skills. Classes begin with multi-media presentations to include intros to Urban Planning, Architectural History, Contemporary Architecture, Environmental Energy + Transportation and Public Art. Focus is on process, not product.

The class will begin with designing a city plan with energy source and transportation, and the second week and third weeks will be for adding architecture and public art. The class culminates in a presentation of learners work that I will create using images of their cities. This will become a .pdf that parents can keep.

The class is designed to include SEL (Social and Emotional Learning) components such as Self-Awareness and Problem-solving skills.
