Course Objective:

To learn how to identify, classify, and tell the story of objects found in the local urban environment and to understand our connections with our surroundings through natural materials and the objects we create.

Workshop Overview:

In Part 1 of the class we will discuss materials found in the urban environment and systems of classification used to describe them, including historical naming of natural systems from locations to planets to man-made objects.

Part 2 will be a hands-on exploration: gathering found materials, mapping, and creating new naming systems based on historical fact or future fiction.

An informational handout, worksheet and survey materials will be provided. All ages are welcome. To sign up for a class, please email schoolofthefuture2010@gmail.com to RSVP.
