Virtual STEAM Workshop: Lunar New Year @ Lewis Latimer H. Museum
Feb 11 all-day
Virtual STEAM Workshop: Lunar New Year @ Lewis Latimer H. Museum | New York | United States

Join us for a special Lunar New Year celebration! For the Year of the Ox, learn the foundation of sculpture!

A sculpture is a 3D work of art and traditionally made from clay, wax, stone, or metal. Nowadays, artists make sculptures out of any material imaginable. Artists work with each material is according to its nature; for that reason, sculptures can be made by carving, modeling, or placing materials together.

2021 is the Year of the Ox! To celebrate this, participants will create ox sculptures using a bar of soap! We will apply some traditional sculpture techniques to make creative works of art.

Please have the following materials available:

1 bar of soap
A pencil
paper
scissors
1 plastic butter knife
Scrapers and peelers – use teaspoons, potato peelers, a paperclip, or similar objects
A brush (paintbrush)
Ages 7 and above, Families welcome.

Pay what you wish. Details to join the live workshop will be shared closer to the event date.

This virtual STEAM workshop is supported, in part, by Simons Foundation and Con Edison.
