Kids Sculpture Workshop
$20 materials fee per child/$15 members
Recommended ages: 6-12 years old
During this fun, hands-on program, kids will explore how young Cyrus Dallin taught himself to sculpt by observing the wildlife and people around him. Kids will participate in an age-appropriate tour of the galleries followed by a hand-building workshop where they will learn Dallin’s method for making armatures to create their own clay sculptures. A materials fee of $20 per child ($15 for members) is due in advance of the program.
