“Everything that is not made by nature is designed by someone.” – Chip Kidd
Join us as we take a "tour" of Alphabet City - the fun, award-winning book by Stephen T. Johnson. We’ll find letters in the unlikeliest places, and together we’ll explore color, forms, and words as a graphic designer. Every grown-up and young designer will leave with their own poster, font, or sign.
We are inviting both READ + MAKE (5-8yo) and DESIGN + BUILD (9-12yo) families in this combined workshop to learn about architecture and design through fundamental principles every designer and discipline learn in school.
About READ + MAKE Workshops
Explore the world of architecture + design with your 5-8yo child at these fun family workshops! Featuring a reading of a creative tale, your child (with your assistance) will make a project which solves a design challenge related to the reading. A great introduction for young minds to the career opportunities available in the fields of architecture, design, and construction. We offer fun, new workshops each month (more often during our annual Constructing Play exhibition), so you can come again and again to work with others and build something amazing!
About DESIGN + BUILD Workshops
Dive into the design process with our DESIGN + BUILD workshops. Have fun as you and your 9-12yo child learn about design, build a project from your imagination, and hone your creative problem-solving skills. We offer fun, new workshops each month (more often during our annual Constructing Play exhibition), so you can come again and again to work with others and build something amazing!
