Constructivist Camp says
Constructivist Camp AUGUST 1-5 9 am-12 pm (serving students K-3rd grade) encourages kids to break down boundaries, using their heads and hands to work together towards a common goal. Constructivist Campers will work alongside artist and engineer, Dave Ghilarducci to develop blueprints for design, architectural, and sculptural projects they would like to bring to fruition. Once the blueprints are complete, the campers will create maquette versions of their concepts which allow them to test their structures and experiment with materials. Finally the young constructivists will use all they've discovered to bring the concepts out of their imaginations and into the material world in the form of large scale lightweight 3 dimensional compositions.

Dave Ghilarducci (b. 1963, Chicago, Illinois) holds a Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Illinois. After working in the engineering field for over twenty-five years, Dave's professional background strongly influences both the materials he uses and his process. Also having studied Physics and Chemistry, Dave's sculptures are extremely influenced by the fundamental constituents of the natural forces that interact and exert on one another.

He currently resides in San Diego, California where he has participated in numerous solo and group shows, including shows at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (2006) and Track 16 Gallery (2006, 2007). In addition to having previously shown in Encinitas' San Diego Botanic Garden, recent exhibitions include shows at Pulse Gallery (2012); Oceanside Museum of Arts (2011, 2012); along with solo shows at Art Produce Gallery (2010) and Sushi Contemporary Performance and Visual Arts (2010). Notable commissions include pieces for The New Children's Museum in San Diego, Wavecom Inc., and DBM Inc. encourages kids to break down boundaries when their heads and hands work together towards a common goal.
