STEAM workshops under theme of arts and games

Theme: Arts & Games

At the heart of this playful and creative adventure, children will have the opportunity to explore the magical world of games and arts, where imagination and creativity take center stage. They will be free to express their individuality, develop their critical thinking, and cultivate their appreciation for forms of artistic expression by creating toys and pieces of art through science. An enriching adventure where fun, creativity, and learning come together to promote children's personal development and well-being.

Agamograph - K - Gr. 8

Art in motion? Someone by the name of Agam developed this artistic concept of an art piece that can be seen from two points of view… Is it art, cinema, optical illusion? It’s a bit of all of that, but most of all, it’s pretty! One art piece; 2 drawings; 2 points of view… Is it art, cinema, optical illusion? Actually, it’s a bit of all of that, but most of all, it’s pretty!

Thaumatrope - Gr 1 +

Optical illusion? Magic? Sciences? It’s a bit of all that! A thaumatrope teaches us about something called retinal persistence, which causes our eyes to mislead our brain into seeing something that isn’t!

Yarn bowl - Gr 3 +

What a nice bowl! Let’s make our own useful art piece to store our keys, coins, or anything else you can think of…! A decorative bowl we do ourselves, what is prettier? Depending on the materials we use and the shape we mold, our bowl will have various uses… let’s explore, create and mostly, let’s have fun!
