ART EVENT “Hands-On Houston: Balance Sculptures” at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft

August 3 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Free

SATURDAY, AUGUST 3, 2024 at 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM: Explore balance and stability by designing your own, whimsical kinetic sculptures using wood and recycled materials in this free workshop at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, part of the museum’s First Saturdays “Hands-On Houston” series.

Tilt, slide, and suspend everyday objects and ordinary materials into surprising arrangements, and explore stability, centers of gravity, and symmetry through this hands-on, tactile activity. Learn to balance your sculpture visually and physically and assemble your materials into a captivating work of art that defies gravity.

Note: This activity will take place indoors and is on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.

HANDS-ON HOUSTON is a free drop-in event held the first Saturday of every month. Each month, a teaching artist demonstrates a craft related to the current exhibitions. Families and children of all ages are welcome to come any time between 11 AM and 3 PM and participate in a 15 – 20-minute activity. Materials are provided. This program supports HCCC’s mission to advance education about the process, product, and history of craft. Learn more here: https://crafthouston.org/learn/
