Saturday, January 28th
11:00am – 2:00pm
Kids get rare chance to learn from top snow artists!
Main Street Station, Breckenridge (Monday, January 16th, 2017): Imagination comes to life through the magic of snow, and little hands. The Main Street Station Junior Snow Sculpture will be held in the Main Street Station Plaza, near the stage on Saturday, January 28th from 11:00am until 2:00pm. The event is free and recommended for children, ages nine and up to help kick-off the Breckenridge International Snow Sculpting viewing.
This year’s theme will focus on animals! After all, snowmen are just too mainstream. Young participants will use the same type of snow that the big competitors use, and will learn the basics of snow sculpting in an enjoyable environment. Instruction will be led by one of Breckenridge’s own artists and sculpting extraordinaire, Mauricio Meneses. Rick Seeley, constructor of the “World’s Largest Snow Fort” at Keystone Resort and part of the professional snow sculpting group “The Flake Benders”, will also be helping the kids to channel their creativity using simple tools to form snowy shapes.
In case you were wondering, the Main Street Station Junior Snow Sculpture event is not a competition. It is however, a chance for kids to learn a constructive and inventive way to appreciate snow from talented teachers who know a thing or two about sculpture and how to have artful fun outdoors! Be ready to see amazing creations in your yard after the next snowfall.
WARNING: The Main Street Station Junior Snow Sculpture could provoke creativity, excitement and the impulse for children to play outside during the winter. Please register and review the tips at www.rockymtnevents.com before joining in and then bring your kiddos for a fun-filled day of AWESOME!
