2017 Summer Camp – Metal Sculptures
9:00am – 4:00pm (aftercare available from 4pm to 5pm)
Do you want to harness the power of the sun to cut metal? Shape that metal with your mind and hands? Join Maker Works for an exciting metal workshop for kids. Students will be introduced to a variety of metalworking methods including forging, casting pewter, plasma cutting, and using various other tools. Students will learn about design and tool skills, which will allow them to create their own custom sculptures.
Students must wear closed toe shoes and natural fiber clothing (cotton, denim). Avoid loose/baggy items. Long hair must be pulled back from the face. Leather gloves are encouraged.
Teacher: Casey (kcd) Dixon, an ArtPrize 2016 finalist for his work on the massive metal tree sculpture, Invasive Species.
