MAKE YOUR OWN MODELING DOUGH
When Cyrus Dallin was a child, his mother Jane nurtured his love for art by harvesting clay from the banks of nearby streams for them to sculpt little figurines together. The family lived in a two-room cabin in Utah Territory and struggled to make ends meet. There was no money to purchase toys, so Jane would bake the figurines in the oven for Cyrus and his siblings to play with. Sculpt your own figurine and share it with us!
