Art Lab 2014: Summer Art & Science Workshop

I must admit that science is my least favorite subject when I was still in school. My parents weren't able to spark my interest and curiosity. Although every summer break, they would enroll me to summer classes such as Abacus class, Chinese calligraphy class to name a few, just to keep me busy and productive. Sad to say, those topics were not of my line of interest but only because the choices of summer classes that time were still so limited. And that was more than 10 years ago!

Times have changed in this 21st century age where lots of interesting and fun workshops have been made available everywhere. It's just a matter of choosing which topic your child is interested to learn. As a first time mom, I can't wait to enroll my child to summer workshops to expose her to different aspects of life and hone her to become a well-rounded person. 

This summer 2014, Hobbes and Landes, in partnership with TASK (The Art School for Kids), is holding a workshop entitled Art Lab where art materials and techniques will be used to perform science experiments and make it into an art work. It's basically science and arts rolled into one workshop. Let me explain to you more about the details of this workshop through Q&A.

How cool is that! Too bad, I still need to wait a few more years before my toddler is eligible to enroll in this workshop. I really hope that my child would appreciate science as much my hubby is so passionate about it. I'm pretty sure that anyone enrolled in this workshop would eventually realize that there's so much fun with science.
