This class will introduce biomimicry and how architecture draws from lessons in nature and is inspired by animal builders. We will introduce and explore nest weaving from birds, building cellular structures like the bees, cave dwellings and more! Your child will learn all about the incredible building abilities of these animals and the architecture they inspire through storytelling and architectural imagery. You will then build and create an architectural model using those lessons within the class and be able to take home your own creations each week. We will also provide a take-home card with the week's animal, architectural lesson, and activities you can do at home to reinforce the learning.
