The Dallin Art Museum is sponsoring a children’s sculpture workshop on Sunday, Feb. 16, from 1 to 3 p.m.
The workshop is offered during school vacation and is designed for children in grades one through four.
Learn how, as a child, Cyrus Dallin 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).
Because of the popularity of this workshop, it is recommended that you register early. Space is limited.
Email info at dallin.org to register.
Please include the child’s name and age, parent phone, e-mail, and mailing 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 advance the legacy of the celebrated American sculptor, Cyrus Dallin, who lived and worked in Arlington, Massachusetts, by collecting, preserving and exhibiting items related to the artist’s life and work, and by serving as a vital educational resource for the community of Arlington and beyond.
Since its 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 Mass. Ave., Arlington Center, the museum is open Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
