How does an artist take a subject, give it life, emotion and gesture to best tell a story in the three dimensional form? Our sculpture classes will deal with creativity; the development of an idea into reality. Our experienced teachers will lead the participants in the creative development of their idea into a sculptural form to best represent that creative idea and through the process hopefully achieve that one of a kind piece of their own.
Getting started in woodworking can seem like a daunting task. From the expense of woodworking tools to determining the different types of wood, there is so much to learn that even the old-timers are still learning. However, learning woodworking isn't difficult. If you master the woodworking basics, the rest will fall into place as you go along. In our classes, you'll complete an entire project that you can take home with you!
GLASS ART CLASSES
Get started working with glass by coming to one of our workshops or schedule a private one-on-one class. Pick your favorite colors and our teachers will help you learn the rest. All students will have something of their own making to proudly display after completing a class. All glass pieces need overnight annealing (a cooling process) and will be ready for pickup the next business day. Students from 13 years of age and up are able to participate in this class.
BRONZE CASTING CLASSES
From ancient civilizations to the present day, sculptors have long-loved the process of sculpting in clay and “magically” turning their forms into beautiful cast bronze. Utilizing state of the art technologies in combination with old world craftsmanship, we will create fine art, sculptures, public art, memorials, awards, monuments and more.
At Artech, you can learn the lost-wax process of casting bronze, and although you won’t be able to pour your own metal (safety first), you can watch our professionals do it. From concept sketches, to 3D clay modeling, to mold-making and wax-work, to casting and coloring the metal, we are there for you.
We are the only bronze casting foundry in the state of Nevada and look forward to providing new learning opportunities for Nevadans and the community at large.
Our gift certificates are the perfect gift for any occasion. Your gift's recipient will be able to use their gift certificate towards any lesson or workshop as well as gallery purchases.
Please contact us if you have any special requests, needs or questions and we will do whatever we can to accommodate you.
