This morning the Boatworks hosted a new art class for the first time- building with Lego.
Instructor Maureen Ennis brought an interesting assortment of Lego pieces, and building experience, to this initial workshop of what is expected to be an ongoing series.
Instructions were provided to show how to build some holiday themed items- tree ornaments, poinsettias, even a mini-Santa Claus. Sculptures were made from a mix of standard pieces and some specialty pieces that are available if you look in the right places.
After the participants were done making the holiday themed items, they had the option of exploring their master builder side and making unique creations of their own.
Based on the success of this class and the enthusiasm of the participants, it is expected to run again in early 2015. Check the main website for details next month. The plan is to be building some cheeseburgers, among other things.
