Create three dimensional abstract or representational sculptures. Bring sketched ideas to the first meeting. Beginning students will purchase alabaster or soap stone at the first meeting. Stones will range approximately $20-$40, plus $20 for finishing supplies. Basic tools provided for use in class. Advanced students may continue on existing projects.
