Family Art Day – Make A Face: Calder’s Wire Cartoon Workshop



Save to:

Wire student 8A-1Adults and Children of all ages will enjoy this playshop of wire tricks that you can use for the rest of your life.  A spool of  wire will become your everyday face, your eyes in disguise or your smile as superhero.  Includes story telling about the playful engineer, inventor and wire artist, Alexander Calder. Beginning and advanced artists will solve the puzzle of sculpting an expressive face in one continuous wire. Hang your creation on the museum wall during the day and take it home later. Optional artist photos will invite others to puzzle “Can you match the sculpture to the Face that made it?”
