Young Interpreters: Exploring Sculpture with Papier Mâché
Join Finn Modder, School Programs Coordinator, Kamloops Art Gallery, to learn about artist Anyssa Fortie and how she uses her memories as inspiration in creating papier mâché sculptures. Over the course of four workshops, participants will experiment with household materials to create their own sculptures using techniques shared by the artist.
These workshops involve using materials and sharp tools such as hot glue, scissors and wire. Some participants may require assistance from an adult.

Participants are encouraged to engage in whatever way is comfortable for them—with or without their cameras and microphones.
