Introduction to Metal Sculpture

Begin your journey into metal sculpture with this comprehensive course that will cover both the technical and artistic aspects of creating art with metal. We will start with the basics of welding, cutting, and safety of metal fabrication. Students will then be guided in designing and constructing their own abstract metal sculpture, geometric wall art, or even a lawn ornament. Materials for the project are to be provided by the student and can include repurposed metal objects and pieces. No experience is necessary. All tools and machinery are provided in our Metal Lab. All necessary training on the machinery is a part of this course. Taking this class can prepare you for a Metal Lab Maker Space membership.
