Students explore wire sculpture inspired by Pacific Rim Sculptors Group during Liberty Arts Explorations program

Liberty Arts welcomed the Pacific Rim Sculptors Group up from the Bay Area in September and October. Throughout the exhibition, different groups of students from local schools made weekly trips to enjoy the art as part of our Explorations Art Education program. The kids took part in a hands-on art project that was based on the wire sculpture pieces by Pam Derham.

After a group discussion led by Education Coordinator, Bee Soulé, the students get to explore freely all the pieces in the exhibit, like these home-made paper works by Lori Goodman.

This cluster of kiddies marvels at the precision balance of a sculpture by Russell Herrman.

After discussing and exploring, the group steps out to the sunny plaza and has a blast creating their own wire sculptures.

The late summer sun casts long shadows upon this youngster’s wire masterpiece.

With their newly created works of art, the students head back to class. Thanks for coming, kids, we’ll see you next time!
