Afterschool Makers: Middle Grades
August 25 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
This year middle grade students can gain skills in creating handmade works of art as well as learn to brand, package and get their work ready to sell just like a Maker! This 14-week afterschool series will take students on an exploration of 3 different makers techniques allowing them to try, create, and experiment with making their own handmade works. As the semester progresses, students will begin to focus on one technique they liked the best to create “products” that they will make, build packaging and branding, getting their goods ready to sell. At the end of each semester, the middle school class will help host our Makers Market for all our students, elementary and middle grades. At this point they will be introduced as Makers and gain the experience of talking to visitors and selling their work. Recommended for students in grades 6 through 10. Visit our website for more information and registration. (Class will not meet on Nov. 24.)
