Youth Workshop Series: Character Maquette Sculpture

Youth Workshop Series

February 24, 2019

This workshop will explore some of the foundations of sculpture including various tools and techniques for building a quick sculpture. Maquette building is one of the first steps in “sketching out” larger sculptures, or developing characters for video games and film. 

Participants will sculpt a human figure onto a wire frame using foil, and then layer modeling clay onto this to create a 3-D sculpted form. 

Workshops are $5 per participant and advanced registration is required. Click here to register.

Museum admission is NOT required to attend the workshop.  Participants may be dropped off by a parent or guardian in the Museum lobby and will be escorted to the workshop by a Museum staff member after their registration has been verified.  After the workshop is over, participants can be picked up in the Museum lobby. Museum admission must be purchased if participant plans to visit the Museum before or after the duration of the workshop.

The Youth Workshops Series is designed for youth ages 10 and up, and takes a more in-depth look into a variety of MAKESHOP and Studio activities. Check the calendar - and the left margin on this page - to find future workshops in the Youth Workshop Series.
