Program Description

On the first Sunday of the month, join WE-DESIGNS and Solidoodle to explore the galleries followed by a hands-on 3D printing workshop inspired by the objects in Out of Hand- a last-chance opportunity to explore digital fabrication in contemporary art.

In this family-focused workshop centered around rethinking and remaking New York City, participants will utilize 3D printing as a new design tool to rapidly prototype a new vision of the city. Why did people decide to settle on the island of Manhattan?  Why do we have so many skyscrapers?  Why are the streets in Manhattan in a grid?  Most importantly, how do architects think about and design all of this? In the workshop each family will work as a team, to chose from a series of design options to remake their own New York City building, but with a twist.

This program is suitable for ages 6 and up. At MAD, our goal is to make everyone feel comfortable and enthusiastic about the opportunity to learn through their hands while having a good time together in our galleries and studio.
