Fall 2017 PreVu


PreVu is a studio-based experience to unleash young kids’ creativity and imagination.

This Fall, we are beginning the fourth season of PreVu, our kids program for young innovators. In each Studio, kids (ages 5-7) will be introduced to a real-world problem and use their creative problem solving, critical thinking, and innovation skills to make and build solutions. During the Studio, our young innovators will learn about the design process, new technologies, and various analog and digital tools (such as 3D printing and laser cutting) to create amazing work.

Theme

Our theme for this Fall is "Animalia Wearables."

Are you fascinated by a hawk’s wings, or intrigued by a turtle’s shell? Wonder how the scales of a snake move together? In this studio, our young designers will choose an animal to research, study their form and how they move, and then design and fabricate wearable art pieces in response to their findings!

Students will have the opportunity to develop ideas using hands-on modeling and making. They will also learn to use software and fabrication tools that allow for prototyping and iterating to hone their unique designs. They will learn to constructively support each other’s projects and work together to make a zoo-ey, zany final collection of animal-inspired wearables!

UPDATE (9/15/17): Fall 2017 PreVu is full. If you are interested in enrolling your child in the program, please email kids@nuvustudio.org. Your name will be added to our waitlist, and we will contact you if a spot opens.

Student registration is processed on a first-come, first-served basis and guaranteed once families enroll and send their final payment. Families can register online through our online portal. A maximum of 15 students will be accepted for each studio. Because enrollment is limited, we recommend that you register and send your final payment as soon as possible.

A deposit of $200 per Session must accompany each registration, and can be paid online through NuVu’s website. Deposits are refundable only until September 15, 2017, after which they become non-refundable. Credit cards are accepted for online deposits only.  

Final payments must be made by check and received in full by September 20, 2017 otherwise the student’s spot will be forfeited to another student on the waitlist. After September 20, families can still register for Fall 2017 PreVu, but final payments must be made immediately after the online registration is completed.
