Study the effect of scale with a teeny tiny microbuild. Using just a few pieces, the participant will create tiny vehicles and a tiny building. LEGO minifigs are giants in this realm! Includes a take home vehicle and building kit.
Note from Trish: This is going to be so much fun! In addition to a tiny automobile and a tiny plane... there will be a group build of a micro-building.
I have found an image of a building that is multi-story and very unusual in shape. The participants will each use the building for inspiration, and create some part of the building - they will adjust the colors to their own tastes. The tricky part will be trying to put the parts together at the end into a fantastical, one of a kind micro-building!
There will be a bit of commerce and each child will be provided with a series of certificates which can be exchanged for pre-packaged parts of various colors and shapes.
It should be huge fun! I am so looking forward to this!
*** I am considering adding a second section of this class. To do that, I need at least 7 participants in that section. ***
Note: This class is at Resurrection Lutheran, 1900 E. Carson (at Cherry)
