Activities:

 

Animal Shapes

Artist: Alexander Calder
Ages 3+
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.

Now it’s time for you to create your own animal to take home. Just like Calder, you may wish to give your creation away as a gift to someone you love.
