Building a Love of Architecture - Grade 3 Enrichment

Architecture Canada and Artists for Kids are bringing architecture to life for kids. In November, two dozen Grade 3 students had the opportunity to work with an architect (Kate Busby) and an art teacher (Candace Gillespie) to expand their understanding of space and forms. Running for three Mondays, the students who were selected by their teachers, were able to learn more about the power of architecture and the elements that make it effective as well an asset to our communities.

In the three day-long classes, kids have learned about perspective, bubble diagrams, elevation drawings and the use of clay in formulating designs, to help them develop a sensitivity and appreciation for the built environment.
