Maker Studio Summer Online - Art-Tech-Design
Monday, August 31, 2020
Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3-5 pm
Zoom link will be sent out to participants before class begins
IMPORTANT: Because of the local delivery requirement, we ask any students outside of Brookline to be within 3 miles of The Makery, located at 2 Sewall Avenue, Brookline, MA.
INSTRUCTOR: Rebecca Loechler
Get a group of friends together and get creative! Each 90-minute online session will have 30 mins of instruction in the areas of art, tech, and design followed by an open workshop where our expert Makery instructor will facilitate and help with personal projects. The goal is to have at least one day a week that we will meet in person outside if the weather permits. This day will likely change each week depending on what project we are working on. The girls will also be asked to come to pick up any kits and items that have been manufactured at The Makery.

Students are required to be able to run the latest version of Inkscape (free online design software) on a Windows or MacOS computer, as well as have access to a computer during class hours in order to meet virtually with their instructor and classmates over Zoom. Students will also have pieces that they design delivered to their house, so we ask that you review our health and wellness procedures before joining the class.
