Create at Home: Twisty Totems

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.

Squeeze, squish, swirl! Get your hands messy with some homemade clay, and see how your favorite colors twist together to make a colorful work of art inspired by Cameron Jamie’s sculpture Mon Singe at Laguna Gloria.

Keep your eyes peeled on Friday, May 8 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!
