The Green Life! Art for Animal- and Earth-Loving Kids (Summer 2013)
Summer Studio Kids Ages 8-11
What might your favorite wild animal tell us if it could speak for itself? Through sculpting imaginative masks and costumes, we'll transform ourselves into the wild animals we love.
Who will you become? A polar bear? A dolphin? A tiger or a grey wolf? Our animals will have the chance to speak out through us, tell what they love about their lives and habitats, and what actions they need us humans to take to preserve them.
We'll also make crazy-cool chains of hand-painted paper banners carrying images of specific places we love in the world. Then, we'll install them around the MCAD campus, along with messages in recycled bottles. Come be part of the fun as we join people around the globe who are celebrating our natural world and taking creative actions to preserve it. For inspiration, we'll take a peek into the awesome history of environmental art, including a trip next-door to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts to see the hand-carved masks created by Native Americans.
Families can join in Friday afternoon during our exhibition, as we share with them our new knowledge about the animals and world around us!
