You will leave with your stone sculpture in hand. Please bring a bag lunch to class. All materials will be provided.

  1. Scott is a wonderful artist and instructor. I've worked with him in private lessons & the group class, and Scott is always very supportive, open, and knowledgeable. He lets us develop our pieces at our own pace, and gives excellent critique / suggestions. If you want to learn how to carve stone, I highly recommend working with Scott Cahaly.
