Past Event February 19, 2017 / 12:00pm – 2:00pm
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.

Makiko believes kids have magical power in creativity and imagination. She is originally from Japan and studied photography in Baltimore, MD. As a child she learned that art is universal language that allows kids express their power. She currently lives in Atlanta and creates art in mixed media including photographic images.
