A week long sculptural journey in all things gritty!

In search of texture, explorers will meet at a local park to scavenge treasures from nature. We’ll then transform into an art lab, where experimenters will learn how to make molds of objects and cast them in plaster and wax. The voyage will end with an art show and celebration in the main classroom. Come prepared to experiment and get your hands dirty!
