Create at Home: Mold Making

Since we can't welcome you to the museum for our monthly Second Saturdays Are for Families program, we invite you to create at home with us! Each week, we'll post a supply list, followed by a step-by-step activity guide to make an artistic creation with materials found in your own home.

Ever wonder how the giant works of art at Laguna Gloria were made? Learn how sculptures are cast in metal and other materials through this fun and easy mold-making activity.

Keep your eyes peeled on Friday, April 24 on our Facebook and Instagram for a step-by-step video tutorial to make your artistic creation. You can also visit for more information and past projects!

In the meantime, let the search for your materials begin!
