Lego Art classes

Just finished Arts Festival again. It is one of my favorite things to do all year. Classes run for two weeks and are one hour per day. I taught two sections of Lego Art ages 5-7 and one section of Ultimate Lego Design ages 10-16. The younger class learns different styles of art through Lego. Students in the older class learn basic Lego design genres and how to identify their own personal Lego style (brick artist, vignette, diorama, kit designer, MOC designer, etc) then they work on incorporating important design elements from that genre into their projects.

I liked this, it was done by another class than mine.

This was "mixed media" day

T-rex "sculpture"

This mosaic made me laugh because it looked so much like D

On LEGO Game day, the kids played LEGO bingo and then built their own Lego games.

This was wings and color theory. I thought this little boy did a nice job of color coordinating his plane.

This student build a lot of MOC (my own creation). MOC is a style where the designer tries to put pieces from different sets together in new visually entertaining ways.
