On March 24 from 2:00-4:00 PM, the Cyrus Dallin Art Museum will host a sculpture workshop for children in grades 1 through 4. 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 $10 per child is due on the day of program. Because of the popularity of this workshop it is recommended that you register early. Space is limited. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.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 confirm program details. 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.
