Itty Bitty Interiors (Sculpture Art Inspired by Architecture) (in person)

Who isn’t fascinated by the imaginary world inhabiting an intricate dollhouse? Or, by miniature environments populated by heroes and heroines? Ages 6-9

This week is designed for budding furniture makers and interior designers. Creatively combine art materials and found objects such as shoeboxes, wrapping paper, bottle caps, wooden blocks, and fabric scraps to create a miniature dwelling and its furniture and decor. Work will build on students’ skills in 3D construction, creating texture and patterns, as well as exercise their imaginations! The week includes a field trip to the Minneapolis Institute of Art where students can gather ideas from the miniatures, furniture, and model buildings on view. At the end of the week, all families are invited to an “Open House” to celebrate the fanciful architecture and interiors of the young artists.

Open to students ages 6–9. MCAD strictly adheres to these age guidelines and is unable to allow exceptions. Please review our complete Summer Youth Camps Policies as well as our General Policies before completing your registration. Covid policies and protocols and information about extended care options through Children's Theatre Company are included in the Summer Youth Camps Policies page.
