Event Information

Take your artwork to another dimension with a full day making art in 3D. Join us at MAC this spring and learn about different sculpting mediums, artists and techniques!

Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for children aged 6 to 11 years. It is open to all ability levels and children don’t need previous experience of making masks. Parents are not expected to accompany children on these courses. All our staff are DBS checked.

The course is accessible for children of all abilities who can participate in practical art and craft activities. We can provide a learning support worker and a parent or carer may assist their child if required. The room is wheelchair accessible.

Age ranges are set carefully to take into account key age developments, materials being used and course stimulus. It is very important that age ranges are not too large or across key stages and therefore need to be adhered to.

What will you learn on this course?

You'll learn about established techniques of sculpture: assembling and modelling, moulding and casting, subtractive sculpting and carving. We'll also look at some inspiring examples of artists who are pushing the boundaries of sculpture, mixing traditional skills and materials with exciting new approaches.

There will be a range of materials to work with including clay, plaster of paris and modroc, plus some more unusual media and found objects. This busy creative day will get everyone excited about what you can achieve when you sculpt…a lot.

Do you need to bring anything?

Children need to bring their own lunch to eat on a supervised one-hour break. All course materials and equipment are provided.

Are there any additional costs?

There are no additional costs for this course.
