CHILDREN'S SCULPTURE WORKSHOP: Lump of Clay*
Saturday, 21st April 2018
11AM - 12:30PM

Sculptor Jene Highstein used different materials like bronze, stone, steel and wood to form abstract objects inspired by the natural world. But drawing was also an important part of his practice.

Join JPNF for a fun workshop that lets children get their hands dirty!

Children learn different drawing techniques to help them depict space, mass and weight on paper and then move on to clay, to create sculptures related to their drawings.

The workshop is suitable for 6 - 12 years old.
