Family Day: Build a Bust

Making paper mache art

Drop by and join in the Smart's free family activities every month! Each Family Day features hands-on art activities designed to inspire children to think about and respond creatively to art and the world around them.

This Saturday, build a bust of yourself as Socrates or a Caesar. Using cardboard and plaster, we’ll make sculptural self-portraits inspired by plaster and marble busts on view in the Smart Museum’s special exhibition Classicisms.

Free. All materials provided. Activities best for kids ages 4–12, accompanied by an adult.
