Event Details

We invite young people between the ages of 4 and 17 years old to make some space with us at the IFF. During this playful workshop we will explore fractals and origami, deconstruct a Business Card Cube and attempt to put it back together, test the strength of folded paper using the weight of stacked books, work in a team to construct a modular origami sculpture, and experiment with methods of folding and connecting business cards on our own.

This workshop is $15 each for children and the adults accompanying them; however, no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Construction materials will be supplied. Direct any questions to mail@theiff.org.

Workshop facilitator Christina Simons is a recent BFA graduate of the California Institute of the Arts, a Jack Kent Cooke Scholar, and a burgeoning native of Los Angeles County. Before pursuing art and photography in California, Christina spent over ten years working in the fields of education and community outreach in New York and Illinois. She has worked with several organizations whose focus is on community development and youth empowerment, including: Cornell University Cooperative Extension, AmeriCorps, the YMCA, Brehm School, and the CalArts Community Arts Partnership. She's taught programming for at-risk youth, community building and youth leadership, early agricultural education, photography workshops, rock climbing, swimming, kayaking AND gymnastics... just to name a few. If you get a chance to chat with her, you might be tempted to ask: Which farm animal is the most difficult to bring to a library? How do you make homemade stereo cards? And, how do you turn a pizza box into a solar oven?
