School of Visual Arts classes are starting in NYC the week of Sept. 17, so sign up while there are still spaces available in Metal Sculpture, Metal Furniture, Creative Blacksmithing, and also Weekend Welding Workshop (Oct. 13/14).
This metal sculpture course covers a broad range of metalworking processes, enabling beginning and more advanced students to discover the enigmatic qualities of metal. Instruction will be given in shop safety; hand and power tools; MIG, Arc and TIG welding; plasma cutting and sheet metal forming. Following a guided first project, students will develop independent projects to synergize learned skills with their own sculptural methods, concepts and sensibilities. No previous sculpture or metal experience is required.
