Unleash your creativity and inner geek with Foldabots workshop in May at the Lopez Museum


Discover the thrill of making your own toys, and get down and dirty with your inner child this summer! Join Jomike Tejido’s Foldabots art workshop happening at the Lopez Museum for three consecutive Saturday mornings, on May 8, 15 and 22, 2011.

In this three-day workshop, participants will learn Tejido’s creative process of conceptual design, prototype construction, and final art of making robot toys. Participants hone not just their drawing skills but their spatial relations as well, including basic paper engineering and strength of forms, basic 3D drawing and coloring, character design and descriptive writing. The final product will be a craft book compilation of the participants’ works.
