Lanesboro, Minn. had its very first session of the Sculpture Surprise program for the summer on Tuesday, June 11. Several children excited to explore their own creativity met at the St. Mane Theatre in downtown Lanesboro.

Directed by Courtney Bergey and Sara Baskett of the Lanesboro Arts Center along with other volunteers, the children worked in groups to create large-scale soft sculptures of foods for the week’s theme. The children used recycled or upcycled materials to make their creations.

Children are invited for five more sessions throughout the summer to participate in Surprise Sculpture. They are scheduled for June 18 and 25 and July 2, 9, and 16. Each session will be in the St. Mane Theatre from noon to 2pm. Children should bring a sack lunch and will eat with the other kids attending the classes.

Each week will feature a different theme that will not be revealed until the session begins. “It helps add to the surprise!” commented Bergey. Once the children complete their sculptures, they are placed on display at a different public location in Lanesboro each week, allowing public audiences to view their art work. “We want it to be something for the community to enjoy,” Bergey stated.

Participation in the Surprise Sculpture classes is completely free and children in first through sixth grade from all over the region are invited to attend. Katrina Bergey, one of the participants in the June 11 class, explained how much she enjoyed Sculpture Surprise, saying, “I really like it and it’s a lot of fun. You start on a project and just go with it.”

The St. Mane Theatre is located at 206 Parkway Avenue North in Lanesboro. For more information about Surprise Sculpture, call the Lanesboro Arts Center and speak with Courtney, Dia, or Sara at 507-467-2446.
