FEBRUARY Vacation Week - Art Explorers

Dates: February 21 – 24, 2017

Theme: Art Explorers - Artful Engineering and Design

Based on planning for the new building and the ongoing renovation of The Umbrella, our February Vacation week, Art Explorers, will take its inspiration from the creative sides of engineering and design!  Art Explorers – Artful Engineering and Design will get the creative sparks going with hands-on projects on design thinking, building and sculptural constructions, environmental design and the natural world, machines and technology!  The integration of the arts into science, math, and engineering is an important part of The Umbrella’s education mission to promote 21st century skills.  Your young artists will think critically and work collaboratively as we explore the many ways that art influences engineering and design.  Join us, and let the adventures begin!
