Michael Stevens: Building with Wood
Dates: Feb. 11, 15, 22; Mar. 1, 4, 22; Apr. 5, 2019
Grades 2-6

Michael Stevens’ sculpture and paintings often begin with a toy or functional object created out of wood. From this simple material, he embarks on a truly quirky story involving characters adapted from old TV series, films, and his own life. Students can learn how to build a story using wood, paint, and other cut outs, that reflects a fairytale or character from their lives.

Ceramics: Fantastic Creatures
Dates: Apr. 15, 19, 22, 29; May 10, 13, 17, 20, 2019
Grades K-6

Our annual ceramics exhibit focuses on sculpture by regional artists who share an interest in the weird, wacky, and surreal. These artists delight in exploring the potential of clay to create new figures and animals that are anything but traditional. In this program, young artists will build a sculpture that is out of this world.
