Sculpture Garden: ICA Art Workshops
A Cut of You: Experiment with materials like fabric, tape, cardboard, and magazine cuttings to create a collage that represents you. Activity Inspired by Sterling Ruby.
Melting Monuments: Melt crayons onto dowels and popsicle sticks to create a colorful sculpture. Watch as layers of wax dry to make one large form. Activity Inspired by Sterling Ruby.
Hanging Landscape Use bamboo dowels and yarn to create a mobile decorated with shapes inspired by nature and images found in magazines. Activity Inspired by Sterling Ruby.
Soft Sculptures: Sculptures can be soft too! Challenge traditional forms of art by crafting an irregular sculpture out of fabric and stuffing. Activity Inspired by Sterling Rub
