Figment’s Homeschool Group is designed to enrich your own curriculum with hands-on learning that’s rooted in S.T.E.A.M. principles. During each session, we spend time exploring the Discovery Lab, creating in the Process Art Studio and playing outside with friends. Each session, we explore a different topic, and students work on both guided and self-directed projects. With some notice, we’re happy to tailor activities to requested concepts and curriculum. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ This program integrates all the concepts we believe in at Figment: S.T.E.A.M. principles, maker mentality, process art and play-based learning. S.T.E.A.M. Heard of STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math)? We believe that adding Art to the equation increases interest and fosters creativity. This hands-on approach to learning gets kids excited about learning and working together as a team. Process Art We believe the process of making art is more important than the outcome. Adults are there to guide children by providing the right materials, teaching technique and assisting along the way. When children take charge of their own creative process, they practice critical thinking, make their own decisions and build confidence along the way. As our artists get older and more interested in new mediums and techniques, we work on skill-building. Maker Mentality Our dedicated Maker Space expands on the foundation of STEAM. Students learn through hands-on and often collaborative projects. This project-based approach builds your maker’s confidence and encourages analytic problem-solving. Play-Based Learning Part of our child-directed philosophy is play-based learning. Play is the basis of experimental learning. The Discovery Lab offers something to engage everyone. It’s a place where your child can be anything, a fashion designer, an engineer, a scientist. They can also just grab a book or play a game with friends.
Children should bring a water bottle, packed lunch and packed snack for the day. We are a PEANUT FREE campus, but other nuts are allowed.
