Young Builders and Designers: Housing Design (3-5)

After School Youth Classes / Armatage -
After School Youth Enrichment Winter 2024

Join us as we explore the world of design! Young Builders and Designers is hosting our annual Housing Design Competition with youth throughout the Twin Cities. Classes start in January and topics covered will be: types of housing, interior design, architectural modeling, color in design, culture as it relates to housing and what's in a room - a comprehensive look at housing. We will build models through this workshop out of LEGO(R) parts and each youth will have the opportunity to compete in a metro wide competition with prizes and a special display of the winning models.

Pricing scale explained:

In order to ensure that our high-quality enrichment classes are accessible to all families, Minneapolis Community Education is now offering fees on a sliding scale. The different prices reflect the cost associated with running a class, as well as discounted options and options that help us cover our administrative costs. Please select the price that works best for your family.

The fee labeled as "class price" covers the full cost of one student to participate in this class.

After-school schedule:

  • 2:30-2:45 arrival/attendance in theater
  • 2:45-3:00 snack in cafeteria
  • 3:05-4:15 class
  • 4:15-4:30 clean up, transition to theater for pickup
  • 4:35-4:45 MAIN pickup in theater
  • 4:45-5:05 OPTIONAL 'bonus time' in theater with simple activities until late pickup/bus

Please note the schedule above. Due to staffing challenges, classes will be wrapping up earlier than in past years and we ask that all students are picked up by 4:45.

If there is a need to pickup your student later, you may select the 5:05 pickup option, as we will be able to accommodate a limited number of students until this time.

Parent pickup is at the MAIN ENTRANCE of Armatage.
