Today, we remember July 22, 1898, the birthday of Alexander Calder. Calder was an American artist known for his sculptures, paintings, prints, and jewelry designs. He is probably best known for his Cirque Calder (Calder’s Circus) and his use of the mobile in art. Our timeline pack today includes a fun circus craft for preschoolers, a second circus project for elementary kids, and two mobile activities for middle school and high school. Have fun!
