Hand Sculptures

AGES: 12 TO 18

All Hands on Deck


6:00 PM TO 9:00 PM

Participants in this camp will get to experience the magic of body-casting. Fixing a moment in time is extremely powerful. We have decided to use this art medium as a force for good, crafting a smile-inducing neighbourhood installation like you’ve never seen. Campers will use alginate to create a negative mould and then will fill this mould with hydrostone plaster, creating a three dimensional model of their own hand communicating symbols of peace or welcome. We’ll sand down any imperfections before sweeping across acrylic paint in a variety of hues. 

On the last day we’ll head outside as a group to place these awe-inspiring sculptures in places where they can make a difference (with permission of course). 

Working with art in the third dimension adds something seriously special to the experience...make sure you don’t miss out on this one.
