Guided by one of the Trust’s talented teaching artists, you will go on an art-filled journey through the Cultural District, stopping and sketching in response to what you see all along the way. Bring a sketch-book, your favorite drawing medium, and a chair.
1:00 p.m. -4:00 p.m. (6th – 8th grade): Magnificent Mega Masks
Working with fluted cardboard, you will fold, roll, shape, and cut your way to creating an original large-scale mask inspired by global designs and iconography.
5:00 p.m. -8:00 p.m. (age 18+): Anything but Clothes Costume-Making
What does bubble wrap, duct tape, and swim noodles all have in common? They are just some of the fun, fantastic supplies you might use when you create an original costume that will most certainly be anything but clothes.
