Animal Sculpture Workshop

  • The Rockwell Museum 111 Cedar St Corning, NY, 14830 United States (map)

Explore and deepen your connection to animals. We all relate to images we see. Why do some resonate and others not?  Animal images are used in art to help people understand their personal identity. After being inspired by Abraham Anik Ruben’s sculptures of birds, animals and spirits, create your own sculpture out of beeswax or soapstone. Using hands and simple tools, scrape away material from small soapstone pieces to create a small sculpture that represents an animal or a blend of animal traits (feather, claw, etc.) that resonate with you. Smaller hands will have the option to work with warmed beeswax as a medium to create their sculpture.

45-minute time slots starting at 10 am, 11 am, 12:30 pm, 1:30 pm, and 2:30 pm
