Family Design Day: Mosaics and Architecture

Architecture can be defined as a collection of parts that together, form a spatial experience. Mosaics are similar; multiple small pieces of varied material are combined to form an image. Mosaics have been used in architecture since ancient times as decoration and artwork, and as indoor and outdoor floor surface. This month, participants will learn about and mosaics through a tour of the Mosaic Arts International Exhibition at BSA Space and use the exhibition to design their own mosaic façade.

This family program is designed for parents and children aged five to 13 years old. A maximum ratio of one adult per three children will be required. Please register both children and adults.

Family Design Day programs encourage children and adults to observe, explore, and design together. In these two-hour hands-on workshops, families are introduced to architecture and design through exhibit tours, walking tours, or slide shows and then complete a hands-on design activity. Architects and design educators lead the activities focused on the built environment of Boston and the world.

BSA Space is one block from South Station. Enter through the BSA Space entrance and go up the green staircase. The program begins promptly at start time.

Your registration includes acceptance of the BSA Space photo release and consent policy.
