The Dallin Art Museum is the sponsor of a children’s sculpture workshop on Sunday, Feb. 22, from to 1 to 3 p.m.
The workshop is offered at the close of school vacation and is designed for children in grades one through four. 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, advance registration is required. Space is limited.
E-mail info [at] 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 values of Cyrus E. Dallin (1866-1944), celebrated sculptor of Arlington, Massachusetts. 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. At 611 Mass. Ave. in Arlington Center, the museum is open Friday through Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
