Registration for Spring classes will begin on March 19 at 9am. This Spring will be our last after-school session. 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)

TUESDAYS : 3:30pm-5:00pm
April 17-June 5 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 course, students will explore the world of printmaking-creating images through repetition and transfer of paint and ink. We'll investigate a range of techniques including monoprints, collagraphs and other methods of printing by hand on a variety of papers, using wood, foam, cardboard and objects.

8 classes : $320 + $30 materials fee (includes sketchbook and portfolio)
