Alexander Calder & Movement

Explore kinetic art with Alexander Calder and his mobiles. Learn about balance and create sculptures that move. Make a mixed-media mobile, acrobat on a trapeze and a balancing paper bird.

Use wire to make unique sculptures. Create a mosaic-filled fish that you can hang in your window, an animal sculpture you can attach to a rock and a self-portrait with beads and yarn.  

Have fun exploring new media and new art techniques, just like Alexander Calder!
