Sculpture: Stone Carving
The Educational Alliance Art School
(COMING SOON to the Manny Cantor Center)
In preparation to the Art Schools return to the Manny Cantor Center, the Educational Alliance's flagship building at 197 East Broadway, we will not be offering sculpture classes this summer. Stay tuned for updated information.
*The Compleat Sculptor located at 90 Vandam Street offers a variety of sculpture classes. For more information visit their website www.sculpt.com
or by phone at (212) 243-6074.
Stone Carving is less difficult than you imagine! Discover how the process of stone carving can be a source of inspiration and even meditative. Learn effective techniques of traditional stone carving with hammer and chisels: cutting, shaping filing and polishing. Either follow the tradition of making a small maquette (model in clay sculpture) before you start carving, or explore 'direct carving' by discovering the form within the sculpture.
Saturdays, 10:30am-1:15pm - 5/3 - 6/28 (No Class 5/24)
Location: The Compleat Sculptor, 90 Vandam Street
8 sessions, $315
Instructor: Nicolai Nickson
