Campers explore and develop model making fundamentals. From learning about scale and figuring out how to assemble their models to creating small scale versions of their favorite Star Wars moments or a chic dream home, there is no end to the possibilities. Every camper will go home at the end of the week with their own unique handmade model, confidence in their new skills, and a love for model making!
Week 6: Waitlist
Autos & Airplanes (July 10-14)
On your mark, get set, go! This program takes campers to new heights when it comes to model making! Aviation and auto enthusiasts take their passion to the next level as they learn to build 3D models of cars and airplanes in this weeklong workshop. Campers start by learning the fundamentals of model making and progressively build on their skills throughout the week by building a model plane, automobile and an environment to stage their models in. While the sky is usually the limit, in this camp there is no limit to how remarkable these models can be!
Star Wars Galactic Builders (July 17-21)
Calling all heroes! In a handwork-inspired camp not so far, far away, the Rebel Alliance needs some assistance! While Han got credit for flying the Millenium Falcon, Chewy knew how to keep it running! Campers embrace their inner Wookie as they learn to design re-creations of their favorite intergalactic moments, from ships to supplies to a favorite character! At the end of the week, they showcase their replicas in a diorama–that they also created! The Force is definitely with our galactic builders in this camp! We’ll have you saying “Luke, I am your model-making kit” in no time!
Dream House Builders (July 24-28)
As the great Picasso once said, “everything you can imagine is real” and The Handwork Studio is here to prove it! In this program, campers imagine and design the house of their dreams. How about slides instead of stairs? How about a full blown rainbow interior? Sure, why not! In this model making program, anything is possible. The week starts as campers flex their pencils and imagination muscles to draw out blueprints. Campers will design interiors, understand how to work in-scale, and learn three-dimensional building techniques. Then they will use a model making kit to bring their dream house to life. Next thing you know, they will want to build a shrink ray so they can go live in the house of their dreams! (Don’t worry, we don’t teach kids how to build one of those, yet…)
