What you'll learn in this kids sculpture class:

Artists will explore the process of sculpting as they learn the tools necessary to make their own clay figures. Experimenting with materials such as wire, paper, fabric, and clay, students will employ new techniques to create a collaborative stop-motion claymation film. The week will conclude with a virtual premier where friends and family members are invited to view the film created during the week.
