Art Break: Dream House Design

Jan 16, 2023

9AM - 3PM, Ages 7-10

Concept

Take your designs to new heights as you draft and model your very own dream home! This one-day workshop explores architecture and design principles, working on drawing, sketching and proportions to begin to make your dream a reality! We create a miniature model using cardboard, recycled items, wood, paper and air-dried clay along with many other mixed media materials. Although your house may not be finished by the end of the day, you can continue to add on to it and add ever-changing rooms to your dream house!

Art Breaks are an exciting new program at Anderson Ranch Arts Center for kids ages 7-10. They are scheduled to complement breaks in the elementary school calendar throughout the year.

Each Art Break has its own theme as it relates to the changing of the seasons and the world around us. Various artistic mediums will be incorporated including ceramics, painting, sculpture and printmaking. Kids will have a safe and inspiring environment to participate in hands-on creative problem-solving activities. They will be encouraged to recognize the arts as a lifelong learning experience as well as an integral part of the past and the future. Art Breaks will also feature special tours of the Anderson Ranch artistic studios for a peek inside the work of Visiting Artists and Studio Coordinators.

Drop off and pick up will take place at the Evelyn and Martin Siegel Children’s Building, just inside the main Anderson Ranch entrance. Children should come prepared with a snack, lunch and water bottle, as well as appropriate apparel for a full day of art-making. Before the start of each Art Break, families and students will be updated with the appropriate COVID protocols as defined by Pitkin County and the CDC.
