Art Rods

In our Art Rods Program your students will learn the basics of 3D design, sculpting and modeling which will release their creativity, and let their imagination go in this fun and engaging art program. We use an inventive and fun material called Art Rods which is a brand new modeling material, a foam rod with wire core which is perfect for prototyping inventions, creating art, teaching children alphabet letters, or assisting STEAM kids. It is fun, colorful, squishy, and an extreme creativity tool. Your students can make dozens of objects like Animals, Airplanes, Pencil holders, flowers and more. They will take home their creations to share with their family and friends.
