The area's first and only dedicated year-round stone carving studio!

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

In this half semester morning class for beginners, students will become acquainted with carving the five million year old medium of soft stone aka. alabaster. The emphasize will be on staying present with the 'process' instead of forcing the results! Stone selection, tool demonstrations, group discussions and art historical references will make this a great chance for beginners to get their feet wet in this ancient medium. Class members will have the chance to grow together while bonding with the medium and jumping into the meditative type process of rock removal. Ideal for beginners who can't commit to a ten week class but want more time to carve then a weekend session.

 The reductive act of stone carving is analogous to us refining ourselves and realizing that we are in fact 'works in progress' and not finished products! In keeping with this ideology the focus on this new class will be more process oriented and spiritual in nature. Using sitting meditation, journaling and a focus on the unconscious this class will attempt to unlock deeper recesses of creativity. Students are encouraged and aided in producing the type of work that interests them. Personal growth in creative thinking is encouraged through individualized discussions with the instructor and the larger group! All levels of experience welcomed!
Tools are included, stone and sandpaper are an additional cost!

  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.
