Get your STEAM (science technology engineering art and math) on this summer with M3!
Fiber: July 6, noon-3pm, with Anya Weitzman
Come explore the meta-medium that is “fibers”! We’ll look at fibers in nature, and fibers in special products we manufacture – like paper money. Then we’ll weave together our own fibers to make recycled paper and cloth!
Materials, Media and Me (M3) is a series of Saturday afternoon workshops for children ages 8-10. Each week, a different artist or technologist will introduce a material, show students how they use the material, and lead them through a project.
The M3 classes have expanded this year to include and highlight Natural Found Objects, Time + Place, Cardboard, Electricity, Body+Movement, Code, Sound, Wood, Light+Shadow, Man-made Found Objects, Food Chemistry + Perception, and Fiber.
Students will explore the properties of the materials with the instructors—How does it bend? How can you attach it to another material? What can I make with this?—before planning their own project. Sign up for one or more M3 classes today!
