Mythical Creature Terrarium

for ages 6–12

Join us for an exciting two-day adventure at out Rodeo Break Mini Camp where young minds can immerse themselves in a world of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) while exploring two captivating themes: upcycling/recycling and desert ecology.

Our camp is all about hands on learning and creativity, where campers get to build, explore, and create using their imaginations and STEAM principles. In this camp we will use recycled plastics, campers will craft their own desert terrarium homes for their sculpted mystical companions.

Instructor: Tiger Brooke

Instructor Bio

Tiger BrookeTiger has her MFA in sculpture from California College of the Arts in San Francisco, sat in on an entire MFA program in Interactive Media from University of Southern California in Los Angeles and received her BS in Printmaking, Drawing and Painting from Portland State University. Earlier in her college career she simultaneously earned three degrees in Engineering Technology: Civil, Mechanical and Architectural, where she honed her interests in inventing, construction, mathematics, practical sciences, and also minored in both theater and environmental studies.

Her interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, combined with an artistic flair and mastery of a litany of different crafts has given her a unique skill set, and has led to exciting endeavors. She has worked on many Stop Motion projects in various cities, designing sets, props, costumes, armatures, rigging systems, puppets, costumes, storyboards and whatever else was needed to get the job done. Tiger has also had her hand in voice acting, singing, animating, producing and directing. Most notably, she was part of the hard-working team that created Charlie Kaufman’s Academy Award-nominated, Anomalisa!

Tiger loves to learn and enjoys passing her skills and passions on to others. She started teaching regularly in Portland, after attending a painting class where the teacher spontaneously asked her if she wanted a job. She has been actively teaching art to people of all ages ever since, and is incredibly excited to present this very special and one-of-a-kind STEAM curriculum to young aspiring miniaturists.
