This program integrates all the concepts we believe in at Figment: S.T.E.A.M. principles, maker mentality, process art, and play-based learning.
Heard of STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math)? We believe that adding Art to the equation increases interest and fosters creativity. Because of this hands-on approach to learning, kids get excited about learning and working together as a team.
We believe the process of making art is more important than the outcome. As such, adults are there to guide children by providing the right materials, teach technique and assist along the way. When children take charge of their own creative process, they practice critical thinking, make their own decisions and build confidence. As our artists get older and more interested in new mediums and techniques, we work on skill-building.
Our dedicated Maker Space expands on the foundation of STEAM. Students learn through hands-on, often collaborative projects. This project-based approach builds your maker’s confidence and encourages analytic problem-solving.
Part of our child-directed philosophy is play-based learning. Play is the basis of experimental learning and the Discovery Lab offers something to engage everyone. It’s a place where your child can be anything, a fashion designer, an engineer, a scientist. They can also just grab a book or play a game with friends.
About The Instructor
Figment owner and founder Amber Scardino began teaching process art classes six years ago. These classes, held in her garage studio under the name Wee Warhols, were a natural extension of the art explorations she’d been leading for her young sons. Amber is also a co-author of the book series STEAM Kids.
We require a notice of 10 business days, prior to your child’s last day at Figment Creative Labs.
