Dallin Museum Hosts Kids Sculpture Workshop During School Vacation Week

The Cyrus Dallin Art Museum will sponsor a children’s sculpture workshop on Sunday, February 22 from 1:00 – 3:00 P.M. The workshop is being offered during school vacation week and is designed for children in grades 1 through 4. Learn how Cyrus Dallin, as a child, taught himself to sculpt by observing the wildlife and people around him. The program will feature an age-appropriate tour of the galleries and a hand-building workshop during which children will learn how to build armatures and work clay to create their own sculptures. A materials fee of $20 is due on the day of the program (families with more than one child attending will be charged a reduced fee of $15 for each additional registrant). Museum members qualify for reduced registration fees based on membership level.

Because of the popularity of this workshop, early registration is strongly recommended. Space is limited. E-mail info@dallin.org to register. Please include the child’s name and age and a parent’s phone number and e-mail address so the museum can contact you with any updated information. A parent or other adult should plan to accompany the child at this workshop.

The mission of the Cyrus Dallin Art Museum is to promote new insights into our shared history by exploring the life, work, and vaulues of Cyrus E. Dallin (1866-1944), celebrated sculptor of Arlington, Massachusetts. Since it’s founding in 1995, the Museum’s collection has quadrupled and presently consists of over 60 works of art including sculptures (freestanding and relief), medals, coins, and paintings.

Every year hundreds of visitors participate in a wide variety of lectures, tours, educational programs and special events. Located at 611 Massachusetts Avenue in Arlington Center, the Museum is open Friday – Sunday from 12:00 – 4:00 pm.
