Alexander Calder: Animal Shapes

Artist Alexander Calder’s love of animals began at a young age and stayed with him throughout his career. When he was just 11 years old, Calder sculpted three-dimensional dog and duck figures from a piece of flat brass sheet metal and presented them to his parents as Christmas gifts.
In this self-directed, drop–in activity, children will create their own animal to take home.
Children may require the assistance of an accompanying adult.
