ONLINE Virtual STEAM Workshop: Lunar New Year

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Join the Lewis Latimer House Museum for a special Lunar New Year celebration! For the Year of the Ox, learn the foundation of sculpture!

A sculpture is a 3D work of art and traditionally made from clay, wax, stone, or metal. Nowadays, artists make sculptures out of any material imaginable. Artists work with each material according to its nature; for that reason, sculptures can be made by carving, modeling, or placing materials together.

2021 is the Year of the Ox! To celebrate this, participants will create ox sculptures using a bar of soap! We will apply some traditional sculpture techniques to make creative works of art.

Please have the following materials available:

1 bar of soap (Ivory brand works best)
A pencil
1 plastic butter knife
Scrapers and peelers – use teaspoons, potato peelers, a paperclip, or similar objects
A paintbrush

Ages 7 and above, Families welcome. Advanced registration required.
