In Flora’s Art Room, every Experience (about 1.5/2 hours long) is shaped around a theme, and includes three parts: one INTRO with a creative warm-up activity involving Flora’s adventures, one part of ART APPRECIATION, and one part of ART MAKING. (Read more about it in the previous blog post).
Today's theme is the FUTURE WORLD.
Whether you love STEM or ART, this Experience will be perfect for you!!! :-)
What might the world look like in 30, 50, 70 years from now? What transportation, buildings, inventions do you imagine there will be? Sketch a scene and create your postcard from the Future World!!!
2. ART APPRECIATION.
Two different scenarios, many details to observe, and interesting stories to develop.
