Description: What are mobiles and stabiles? A mobile is a type of sculpture that is suspended in the air and often moves with air currents. A stabile is a free-standing sculpture in the style of a mobile that stands on a base. In this workshop, students will design and construct their own stabiles and mobiles while learning about the principles of visual and physical balance. We will learn about historical and contemporary artists known for creating this type of sculpture. All are welcome, with or without prior experience.
