Lego at Lark: Japanese Garden and Minecraft
Saturdays, noon to 1:30 p.m.

Drop-off Lego classes at Lark are back, taught again by Eleanor Rodgers. The classes are for kids aged 4 to 8, and the number of spaces for 4-year-olds is limited. 

Japanese Garden
(loosely based on Brooklyn Botanical Garden)
Saturdays, April 9th and 16th, noon to 1:30 p.m.

The building project will include a cherry blossom tree esplanade, a pagoda, a zen rock garden, a tori (ceremonial archway), and a lake with turtles, stepping stones, and ornamental arched bridges.

Lego Minecraft
Saturdays, May 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th, noon to 1:30 p.m.

The class starts in the forest biome where Steve (or Alex) starts out to explore the Minecraft world. Along the way, s/he’ll build their own house, encounter animals (building the wolves, sheep, pigs, chickens and cows) and other MOBs (villager, creeper, spider), go mining (building a mine, minecart, and tracks), and teleport through portals to the nether.

If most of the above doesn’t make sense to you because your Lego-lover doesn’t play Minecraft, don’t worry--it’s still a fun class for those with only a passing familiarity with Minecraft. In essence, we build a forest, houses, farms, a mine, and a big underground cave full of lava.


Japanese Garden, 2 weeks, $50
Lego Minecraft, 4 weeks, $95
Sign up for both classes, $140
Sign up for single classes, $25 per class
