Luba Lukova: Designing Justice Tour and Hands-On Activity

This summer, make your voice heard using images rather than words at MODA. On this interactive tour of our current exhibition, Luba Lukova: Designing Justice, students will gain a better understanding of visual literacy – the ability to make real meaning of the images that we encounter on a daily basis. We’ll discuss how the use of color, shapes, and symbols can be used to illustrate an artist’s message.This tour features 51 works from the artist, Luba Lukova, and an in-exhibition activity designed to foster creativity and visual literacy.

Following the tour, students will be tasked with creating meaning and messages of their own, as they design their own social justice poster.

The cost is $10/person. 

Capacity: 40 students* 
*For every 10 students, we require one chaperone to assist with guiding the group throughout the galleries.

Introduction to 3D Design and Printing Workshop

At MODA, we're 100% on board with the Maker Movement's manifesto, which says that "making is fundamental to what it means to be human." We believe that one of the best ways to explore a problem and to find solutions is by using your hands to make, learn, and explore.

Our 3D printing workshop provides an introduction to designing in 3 dimensions. Students will learn how a 3D printer works and participate in a 3D modeling demo with MODA instructors using the computer aided design (CAD) program, Tinkercad. Students will work collaboratively to design an item for their community that MODA will print and mail.

The cost is $15/person.

This workshop is limited to 20 persons.
