Art Night at the Aquarium

Quick Details

Join us for a night of fun and creativity! Local artist and filmmaker Ken Cosentino will teach you how to make a sculpture that you can take home the same night!

This class is an introduction to basic sculpting. You will learn basic sculpting skills and techniques. You will be sculpting a sea turtle out of air dry clay which will harden into a nice decorative piece for you to display as you please. All materials are included.

You’ll also enjoy an after-hours experience at the Aquarium, with plenty of time to check out all of our exhibits, including our brand new touch pool, M&T Bank Shark & Ray Bay after class.
