Connecting to Nature with Barbara Hepworth

Family Program

August 18, 2020, 5-6 pm

Online via Zoom

Join us as we explore the innovative artwork of Barbara Hepworth, a pioneering twentieth-century sculptor. As we look closely at her work, we will learn about the ways nature inspired her and reflect on what brings joy to our lives. Inspired by Hepworth’s creative use of materials and abstract forms, we will construct a mixed-media sculpture with found objects and common household items. We encourage children and loved ones to work together on this piece of art. Note: This program will be repeated on August 25.

Materials Needed:

  • Items to build with: paper, paper plates, cardboard, cardboard boxes, egg cartons, pipe cleaners, tin foil, bottle caps, string, twigs. Be creative!
  • Crayons, markers, or colored pencils
  • Scissors, hole punches
  • Glue or tape
