The Contemporary Kids program presents artist, Makiko Maekawa, who will showcase how kids can make a sculpture by wrapping yarn. Creating sculpture allows them to explore line and space in 3 dimensions. There will be easily malleable wire, foil, paper and tape to make the base for the sculpture. Also explore the outdoors around the Contemporary for a found objects as the base. Once base is complete, let’s wrap the yarn to add color and design.
