Family Saturday: Spool Sculptures

Join us for Family Saturday: Spool Sculptures on Saturday, December 2. We will begin with a tour of Other Side: Art, Object, Self and then we will look at Dario Robleto’s work, You Make My World A Better Place To Find. Afterwards, we’ll make sculptures from wooden spools and colorful buttons, gathering inspiration from his technique of taking something old and turning it into something new.

Family Saturdays foster multigenerational creative cooperation through looking at artwork, discussing it, and engaging in a hands-on art activity. Most programs run from 2:00 – 3:30 pm and include a tour of a specific exhibition.

All programs are free and open to the public, and suitable for children ages 5 and older, accompanied by their adult companions. Materials are provided. Reservations are required—for additional information and reservations, call the Tang’s Visitor Service Desk at 518-580-8080.
