What’s a creative 10- to 14-year-old to do? Sports? Maybe. Video games? Likely. Wish they had a creative outlet where they could explore and develop their personal brand of creativity? Definitely!
The Scott Family Amazeum launches programming for 10- to 14-year-old makers, doers, inventors, and creators in October. Make it Yourself programs in the Amazeum Workshop support exploring creative ideas and developing confidence with the tools, materials and techniques that bring those ideas into reality through hands-on activities.
Make it Yourself workshops provide access to cutting edge tools like laser cutters, 3D printers, and design software along with traditional creative processes like mold making and casting and hand and power tools. Each monthly series focuses on diverse tools and skills with hands-on activities, time for exploration, and making, lots of making.
Workshops are held Wednesday nights from 6 to 7:30 pm at the Amazeum in Bentonville. The cost for each workshop is $65 per person for Amazeum members and $75 for non-members. Wednesday nights are Priceless Nights at the Amazeum. Family members are encouraged to visit the Amazeum and play for free while their child participates in the workshop. Priceless Nights are admission free thanks to the support of the Willard and Pat Walker Family Foundation.
