2:00 p.m. Arcata Library, Kinetic Sculpture with Shoshanna, a Kids Create Workshop.

Friday, January 3, 2020

Inspired by the dazzling large human powered art sculptures that are featured in the 37-mile Kinetic Grand Championship on Memorial Day Weekend from Arcata to Ferndale, this creative project challenges artists to create a sculpture that can be directed through our portable tabletop racetrack using all sorts of recycled and creatively reused treasures and basic crafting supplies. Great for ages 4 and up with caregiver help, or kids 7 and up on their own. Fine to work solo or in teams.
