Shrunken Head Sculpting


Join us in creating shrunken head sculptures!

We will be using apples that are soaked in salt and vinegar to sculpt faces! When they are left to dry for a day, the reaction of these materials causes the apple to shrink, so that it will appear to be a shriveled head Halloween work of art.

We will be developing fine motor skills, learning cause and effect, as well as observing the interesting chemical reaction between these substances.

Take a peak inside our “hole in the wall” miniature sculpture located to the left of the art studio door to view a few troll figures huddled around a camp fire who’s heads were made this way.

The event is a part of the museum’s 13 Days of Halloween celebration.
