Registration for the Spring session will begin on March 19 at 9am. Below is a sample of our Winter classes. 3D CHARACTER DESIGN
[grades K-2]

Students create their own characters! We will start from sketches, then bring our creations to life in three dimensions. Students will give their characters unique personalities through their body shapes and faces. We'll study facial expressions and then apply what we've learned to our characters, giving them a range of emotions. Students will create free-standing and relief sculptural characters using a variety of materials including clay, wire, wood, and found objects.

8 classes : $240 + $25 materials fee (includes sketchbook and portfolio)

THURSDAYS : 3:30pm-5:00pm
Feb 1-March 29 : No class Feb 22 POW! WHAM! SPLAT!
[grades K-2]

Villains and wrong-doers and bad guys beware! Brooklyn Design Lab students will create superheroes and superheroines to save our city. We will also design villains, evil geniuses, and mad scientists-what's a metropolis without them? Students will draw, make collages and mixed-media pieces to create heroes, sidekicks, disguises, secret identities, and nemeses.

8 classes : $240 + $25 materials fee (includes sketchbook and portfolio)

[grades 3-5]

In this class students will create their own tiny worlds out of wood, paper, clay, found objects, fabric, toy parts and more. Each detailed construction will have it's own concept or motif. We will play with scale, contain a world in a box, re-create a scene from a film, and use nature as inspiration.
