Join New York Adventure Club for our exclusive monthly Play-Doh sculpting & wine night series at the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art midtown headquarters, which features dozens of plaster casts made in the 19th century from original works dating to antiquity.
Led by renown classical sculptor Emily Bedard, this interactive workshop will include an introduction on how classical sculpture is made and a step-by-step sculpting demonstration, before participants are set loose to create their own play-doh sculptures using one of the room's plaster ornaments as a model.
Wine and snacks will be served throughout the workshop :)
All interested are welcome, and no experience is required! All Play-Doh sculptures can be taken home at the end of the workshop.
