After School Art Club:
Alexander Calder

Wed, June 16, 2021
4–5 pm

Online, via Zoom

For kids ages 5–10

Welcome to After School Art Club, a free weekly online program with Whitney educators! Kids ages 5 to 10 are invited to experiment and make art with at-home art materials. Tell a friend and join the club!

This week’s activity is inspired by Alexander Calder. We will learn how the artist built a miniature circus and performer figurines using everyday materials. Then we will gather unique materials from around our homes and build our own miniature circus performers!


  • Scraps of paper and cardboard 
  • Materials from your recycling bin, like bottle caps and plastic containers
  • Wire
  • Scissors
  • Glue sticks
  • Tape
  • Rubber bands
