Kinetic Sculpture Class

This slideshow gives a glimpse of all the hard work our KSC artists put into our 2016 entry: the Dragon.



The Kinetic Sculpture Class is a ton of fun! Students work with artists from 40th Street AIR to design and build kinetic sculptures. Through interactive hands-on projects and activities, participants have the opportunity to make art MOVE! The class' big project together will be to create a large kinetic bike sculpture they can actually ride!

Students will also craft funky outfits that will match the theme of their bike sculpture that they will wear when they take the sculpture to the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby! There we will get to ride the sculpture in the Derby and see everyone else's awesome and creative human-powered vehicles too!

Even better, students will attend another fun event - our Youth Council's Fashion Show! There they will get to see the very outfits they designed on the catwalk alongside other outfits NBW youth designed!




March 3rd, 2017- May 19th, 2017.

Classes meet every Friday, 4:00 - 7:00 PM, at 3939 Lancaster Ave in West Philadelphia.

The program ends with NBW's attendance to the very amazing annual Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby on May 20th, our Monthly Group Ride. 



The Kinetic Sculpture Class is a FREE after-school program offered to NBW students who have graduated from Earn-A-Bike, Ride Club, Freedom to Ride, or Summer Camp.
