August 10, 2017, 12:00 PM - September 4, 2017, 5:00 PM @ Spellman Museum of Stamps and Postal History
Visitors to the Spellman Museum of Stamps & Postal History on the Regis College campus in Weston are invited to do a “whale watch” in the Museum’s two main galleries. As part of its “Summer and Stamps – Gone Fish-In” exhibit, over 300 stamps from around the world featuring the great variety of whales and other ocean creatures are on display. Stamps from such countries as Iceland, Russia, Grenada, Liberia, St. Vincent, Tonga, Tuvalu and the Maldives picture the many species of ocean life. In addition, stamps issued by the United Nations to celebrate the International Year of the Ocean are exhibited,
Children can “fish” for stamps to start their own collection from the special philatelic fish tanks loaded with both United States and worldwide stamps. In addition, children can do stamp scavenger hunts in the galleries to win stamp prizes, design their own ocean stamps and decorate book marks with stamps. Booklets about how to start a stamp collection are also available for free.
August 10, 2017, 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ Community Room
Alexander Calder was a mid 20th century artist best known for his mobiles and stabiles. The term stables was coined to describe Calder's monumental sculptures made from flat curvilinear shapes of metal. In this workshop, kids will create two different kinds of standing sculptures made from flat sheets of chipboard. We will discuss how to place the forms so that the piece will remain standing. Using Calder's typically bright colors we will use oil pastels to embellish the surfaces.
Space is limited! Sign up at the Youth Services Desk starts July 24th.
