Stone Carving Saturdays/Weekly Classes





       
Stone carving is an ancient activity where pieces of rough natural stone are shaped by the controlled removal of stone. Owing to the permanence of the material, evidence can be found that even the earliest societies indulged in some form of stone work. -Wikipedia

'Carving a Path to team building, chip by chip.."

 Your newest team building exercise will involve  creativity, inspiration and stone sculpture. Yes, art – even for those who think they can only paint by numbers (or not at all).
Savvy business owners, corporate HR directors and nonprofit execs are engaging Spirited Art for hands-on team building sessions.
Participants pick up a hammer and chisel and follow easy-to-understand steps from a knowledgeable facilitator who guides the intersection of work and stone sculpture. Through the team process, colleagues begin to carve downs walls, build up camaraderie and share fulfillment of a job well done—all with the right mix of humor and fun. And as a lasting memento, each has their own “masterpiece” to take back to the office.
  There is a bonding which occurs in a studio when ten or more people are collectively pounding on rock! It is one of the most 'creatively' rewarding processes  professionals can participate in this modern age of technology and ever looming deadlines.

-half day/full day sessions.
-combo packages
-option of food and beverages
