Event Description

Pop-Up Architecture with Carol Barton

With Carol Barton, explore how to use pop-up structures to suggest houses, local points of interest, historical buildings, and internationally recognized architectural treasures. Participants discuss how to incorporate photos, maps, and other collage elements into pop-up illustrations and share suggestions for classroom architectural pop-up projects.

Registrants receive a recommended supply list, applicable digital resources, and Zoom meeting link one week prior to each session.

Camp activities are largely designed to make use of materials and tools you might have at home, to encourage repurposing and seeing everyday objects in a new light.

Session participants can request a professional development certificate of completion reflecting total earned participation hours.
