Art Adventures: Clay “Hand” Sculptures – AM Session

Designed for 6- to 9-year-olds, Art Adventures sessions provide kids with a guided view of art in the Ackland’s galleries, followed by the opportunity to create take-home treasures in an adjacent art studio using newly-learned art-making techniques. Materials are provided.

This month, make and decorate a clay “hand” sculpture, inspired by pottery in the exhibition Color Across Asia.

Free for Members, $5 for non-members. Space is limited. REGISTER ONLINE.
