All the World’s a Stage: Children’s design workshop at the Boston Public Library

The words of William Shakespeare have inspired designers for 500 years. If all the world’s a stage, every place and space we design is a set for our lives. In theater design, it is the set designer’s job to envision the scenery, furniture, and props that create the environment for the action to take place and the play to unfold.

In this hands-on program led by architects from BSA Space, students will learn about how the setting of a play influences the action and the mood, and then use art, mathematics, and language arts skills to create a three-dimensional model as a setting for their own story. This program is for children age six to nine.

This event is part of a five-session program running from January 23 to February 13, 2017.

This is a program of the BSA Foundation.
