Kid EdVentures – Be a Sculptor – October 18

The Hi-Desert Nature Museum is kicking off a brand new education program! Join us for Kid EdVentures, an hour long program that gets kids immersed in different fields through hands-on activities just like the professionals.

Sculpture is three-dimensional artwork created by shaping or combining materials. Materials may be worked by removal such as carving; or they may be assembled such as by gluing, or hardened such as by firing.

Sculptors work in the movie industry, for the police, in museums, and much more.

In this class you will learn the basics and take home a creature you designed.

This interactive program will take place on October 18 from 10:30am-11:30am and is free!
