Create a Character, Write a Story, Build a Set


Instructor:  Ellen Sprouls, Ages 7-12, $135

Who designed Hogwarts? Why does it have so many turrets? Why does the library have blue carpet and blue chairs? Architects design buildings. Set designers create the scenes for plays and movies.  They create the plans that are used to build them. Interior designers plan and decide what should go inside the rooms of all types of structures including schools, libraries, restaurants, and even houses. Taking inspiration from the natural environments of Ox-Bow, students will each create a series of characters, write a short script or story starring their characters, then design, build, and decorate a building and design a model set.  Students will use materials found in the natural environment along with paint, fabric, fancy papers and many other materials, to create your dream set!
