The Museum's makerspace
NOTE: The Innovators LAB will be closed on Dec. 2, 1-2:30pm.
The Rosso Family Foundation Innovators LAB is our collaborative makerspace where we work with local artists and experts from various fields to create a design challenge to nurture creativity, problem solving, skill building and learning.
What sets the Innovators LAB apart from other makerspaces is the inclusion of resident professionals which include artists, architects, engineers and others. These resident professionals develop design challenges alongside our Creative Team to provide open-ended, skill-building projects that explore real world issues. The Innovators LAB targets families with children ages 6-13 and provides opportunities to experiment with a variety of ideas, materials and hands-on techniques.
Ingram Ober Artist Residency
Throughout the months of November and December, we are hosting two workshops in the Innovators LAB designed by artist-in-residence Ingram Ober, a San Diego-based artist and educator who teaches sculpture and foundry at Palomar College. The workshops, Impressions and Lend a Hand, explore both the artistic and scientific processes of creating unique molds and casts.
This artist-residency and workshops are made possible in part by The Rosso Family Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
