Casting Crew

In this three-day drop-off program students will be inspired by items on view in our current exhibition, Masterworks:225 Years of Collecting. We’ll take special note of artifacts and artwork that were created using casting techniques such as the ornate cast iron stoves. These items will get our artistic minds in gear as we experiment with our own basic casting techniques using mediums like plaster, wax, and clay. 

Tuition includes materials and museum admission.
