This month’s Young Artist Workshop at the Museum of Art and History (MOAH), 665 W. Lancaster Blvd. is inspired by current exhibiting artist Brad Howe’s free-standing sculptures.

The sculptures, represent a clean slate—a blank canvas where the artist acts as a solo explorer of his own ideas, setting out to translate his thoughts into pure form.

On May 29, children 17 years old and younger are invited to create a piece exploring pattern, shape and form using colorful construction paper, tape, cardboard and their own creative contemplations. Participants will be encouraged to translate their personal thoughts into art through the construction of their own sculpture.

While at the workshop, participants and their families are encouraged to visit Howe’s exhibits displayed in the museum’s Jewelbox and rooftop galleries, in order to gain a greater appreciation of the artist’s work in relation to their own projects.

The no-cost drop-in style workshops sponsored by the Children’s Center of the Antelope Valley, are held in MOAH’s Hernando and Fran Marroquin Family Classroom the last Thursday of every month.

Additional information and donation support opportunities are available on MOAH’s website, www.lancastermoah.org.
