Scouts will tour the Michener galleries and sculpture garden, where they will:
See a variety of sculptures;
Listen to a presentation about the artist’s process used to create each sculpture;
See selected videos of artists creating their works;
Develop an understanding of how a mold is used to create a sculpture;
Discuss the importance of visual arts and how it strengthens social tolerance and helps stimulate
cultural, intellectual, and personal development.
2. Clay Sculpture
Scouts will create a clay relief sculpture of a life size human head.
3. Learning about Molds
Scouts will create a plaster gauze sculpture of a fruit or vegetable, and develop an understanding of how a mold works.
4. Find out about career opportunities in sculpture.
At the close of the workshop, Scouts will engage in a conversation about careers in sculpture.
