Architecture. The Art of Seeing. Second blockArchitecture. The Art of Seeing. Second block

This family course for kids aged eight and older and their parents combines an introduction to the history of architectural styles and forms with practice to develop spatial thinking.

In each class, participants work on their own projects, planning the city of the future, making stained glass windows or constructing bridges. The combination of theory and practice allows them to get a better feeling of space, shape, proportion, and composition.

The course consists of 22 classes in two blocks: 11 classes from February to May and 11 classes from September to December. Participants may subscribe to either segment; however, it is recommended to start with the first block.

Class size: 15

Family ticket for 1 kid and 1 adult (11 classes): 12,000 RUB
