A Bennington favourite. Designed to fulfill the Science and Technology components of the Ontario School Curriculum. Each student builds their own project and all projects have moving parts. We use mainly reclaimed wood and other materials so we teach the students the value of making “something from nothing”. Send e-transfer to $169.50. Note, if payment has not been received by the third session, your child will not be admitted into the program.
Builders will have their imaginations challenged weekly with creatively themed builds. Students will be encouraged to share their creations, and how they came up with the idea. The Brick Labs’ Instructor will guide and mentor students in how to take ideas from a concept to a piece they are willing to share with their peers. Creative Design is a unique way to encourage children to understand that imagination is a powerful tool in idea development. Intrinsically, they will build self-esteem and confidence, feeling more comfortable in group settings.

Design any type of structure and space you want! This class will explore the fundamentals of architectural design, both in drawing and model form. Students will be able to handpick what they would like to design and some of the materials that they would like to use, based on their interests and past experience in this course or other art-based classes. We will use 2- and 3-dimensional methods of representational drawings, scale models and collage in designing the student’s own spaces and structures. Each student will begin with an abstract concept for their specific design and end the term with a clear representation of that idea in drawing and scale model.
