One Day Workshops: 
From IDea to Rad Project in 6 hours

Prompts range from the technical (a cart that can roll down a ramp and make a turn) to the fanciful, (a paint brush too big to be operated by human hands). Once the challenge is revealed, the rest is up to the kids. Does our cart have three or four wheels? How does it turn? Is it a bus? How big is a mega-paintbrush? Should it be on pulleys? What if it was a battering ram that made art upon impact? Every session we do something we've never done before, keeping it fresh and exciting for participants new and old.
