All the Worlds a Stage

20161116_180005Children’s design workshops continue at the Boston Public Library

January 23 – February 13 2017 | 4:00 PM5:15 PM
Price: Free

Where: West Roxbury Branch of the Boston Public Library, 1961 Centre Street, West Roxbury, MA

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, 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.

To register, call the Boston Public Library at 617-325-3147.
