Join us for a special Lunar New Year celebration! For the Year of the Ox, learn the foundation of sculpture!

A sculpture is a 3D work of art and traditionally made from clay, wax, stone, or metal. Nowadays, artists make sculptures out of any material imaginable. Artists work with each material according to its nature; for that reason, sculptures can be made by carving, modeling, or placing materials together.

2021 is the Year of the Ox! To celebrate this, participants will create ox sculptures using a bar of soap! We will apply some traditional sculpture techniques to make creative works of art.

Please have the following materials available:

  • 1 bar of soap (Ivory brand works best)
  • A pencil
  • paper
  • scissors
  • 1 plastic butter knife
  • Scrapers and peelers – use teaspoons, potato peelers, a paperclip, or similar objects
  • A paintbrush

Ages 7 and above, Families welcome.

This program is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and supported, in part, by Simons Foundation, Con Edison, and public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
