M3: Metal

June 15, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Snip, bend, curl and twist line wire into 3D wire sculptures with guest artist Oreen Cohen. 
In this M3, kids will learn how to safely use hand tools to manipulate different gauges of wire and fastening techniques by translating their own 2D line drawing into sculpture. Wire is an important and basic tool in a sculptors studio. This malleable, flexible, open-ended and responsive material is used for armatures, structure and line work. In the last hour of the workshop, kids will be introduced to other found materials that can be integrated to complete the sculpture with a base and added color!

Looking for something for your summer Saturday afternoons? M3 (Materials, Media, and Me) is Assemble’s summertime Saturday program, running from 1pm-3pm. It’s a free workshop for kids ages 5-10 to get to know the material world around them!

M3 uses an educational approach known as STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). STEAM-based learning explores the similar ways that scientists, makers, and artists approach projects. At M3, students learn through experience as local experts guide them through the design process. Each week, a different artist or technologist will introduce a material, show students how they use the material, and lead them through a project.
