Jump start your holiday shopping on the biggest deal day of the year while the kids enjoy a day of hands on learning and creativity with our School Day Off Shop Camp for Kids.
Students grades 6 through 10 can join us for the day to learn the basics of woodshop (including a safety orientation) with a resident woodworker and then complete the assembly of a woodworking project they can make and keep. During the second part of the day, students will get an overview of our laser cutter and engraver and will take their own art from paper to the design software to a laser cut piece.
After assembly, students will get the opportunity to paint and decorate their projects.
We'll conclude the afternoon with a movie and popcorn on the projector in our freshly renovated gallery while students put the final touches on their projects.
Healthy snack break and beverages provided, please provide a sacked lunch.
This is a fantastic opportunity for kids to get some practical and hands-on experience with conventional and high tech tools in a safe environment with experienced and talented instructors, then let their creativity run wild in a fun and social setting!
6 students minimum, 14 students maximum.
