Sculptures in the garden!


Have you ever made a sculpture? A sculpture is something you make that has a shape; it’s not flat like a picture. It could be a tree made out of Legos, or a clay monster, or rocks piled up into a tower, or just about anything!

A few days ago, we went to see a lot of sculptures at a place called the North Carolina Botanical Garden. Every year, they have a sculpture show. Here are some of the cool things we saw… (Oh, they also have a kids’ area, too!)

I just realized that we saw a LOT of animal sculptures that day! These two buddies are masks made out of concrete and steel by the artist Forrest Greenslade from Pittsboro, NC. And here are more animal sculptures… Aren’t they cool!

There were even some creepy-looking sculptures – good for Halloween! Can you spot the faces in each of these photos?

Oh, one more sculpture… we can’t forget the fairy garden! Those are little trees made out of pine cones!


If you live in North Carolina, see if you can visit the Botanical Garden. The sculptures will be here until December 9, 2018.
