ATTENTION! This is a 3 Session Class @ 4 ~5 Hrs Each. Hello Future Artists, This workshop is offered as a follow up to the Intro to Metal Sculpture class. However, If you have already had a bit of experience with Welding & fabrication elsewhere, then you are welcome to join! If you have no previous welding or metal shop experience please do not sign up to this class but instead, register for the Intro to Metal Sculpture. We at the Young Sparks Foundation, promise you that, the Intro class will fulfill your desire for thrill and the requirement for the Intermediate Level Workshop. In this workshop you will have freedom to build any project (limit on size) with a Creative Metal Fabricator as your guide. YOU will be expected to come up with a design and build a project primarily on your own. Once you've registered we will discuss your idea and I will advise you on size, materials to use, how long it may take, etc. Students will be briefly re-introduced to the previous skills you learned then, given advance techniques to these skills and, students will also be introduced to new tools not previously used in the "Intro" class, as well as gain more experience overall. For one price*, you will receive 3 visits at 4~5 hours each. That's 12 to 15 hours to start (or complete) your own project. This is an opportunity to advance your experience level and build an awesome project! You should expect your project might take more time to complete than the initial 3 visits. Since every project is different, the time it takes will vary. This is why I charge per day after the first three visits, rather than one price more time than you need. Additional days (after the first three), cost $75 per shop visit [4~5 hrs]. Sorry, I do not break cost down per hour spent. Your visits can be on ANY DATE you desire chosen from the list of dates I offer in the schedule. If none show on the schedule then simply send me a message and we can set up dates. However, sessions are held most Saturdays, and occasional Sunday from 11am to 5pm. Once you register, I will keep you updated when new dates/times are added. Material for projects are limited to the sources we have in our shop offered at no additional cost. All classes produced by the Young Sparks Foundation support a philanthropic endeavor, therefore it is not in our financial means to provide brand new metal materials, otherwise the class rate would be a great deal higher. Our metal supply is only made up of what was donated to us by local artists and businesses, yet scrap items can be quite interesting. However, if you have a specific project in mind, I suggest you make purchase of new material. However, before you do, please communicate with me. As my student, I can get you a discount with a local metal supplier! Yes, I'll be your guide but, YOU will be the CREATIVE FIRE behind it all! You're perspective will change, your confidence will improve, and you will be considered an Artist! Follow the rainbow bridge! Register Now! See you soon, ~ Day www.YoungSparksFoundation.org *cheaper than The Crucible (in West Oakland)

About
Message
Twelve years ago I sought a change in careers. During 6 months as an Apprentice to the successful Los Angeles metal artist, Brad Howe, I found my inspiration. I attended Welding classes there then, immediately moved to the Bay Area to pursue the dream of becoming metal sculptor. I gained the most extraordinary experiences working in Bay Area creative fabrication shops, built custom decor, furniture, and large scale art pieces by prominent artists such as Anish Kapoor (who designed Cloud Gate). Since 2007, I've worked on many other large scale project at American Steel Studios in Oakland with metal sculptor, Karen Cusolito and, with the Flaming Lotus Girls artist collective of San Francisco, since 2008. Sculptures by Ms. Cusolito, and the FLG collective are always designed to have "interactive" features, such as fire & lighting effects, and strong enough to be climbed upon. Most of the large scale "interactive" art you see in the Bay Area was originally designed for installation at the Burning Man Festival, held in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada USA. However, many of the same art projects later travel across the globe for temporary enjoyment at cultural events and music festivals. It was during my time volunteering on the Flaming Lotus Girls projects that I was inspired to share my knowledge as a metal artist and become an Instructor. Obtaining the power to manipulate such an incredible element is a tremendous thrill that drives my desire to share that experience with all my students. I promise... you WILL love this class and be just as thrilled you took it! It's important to me, that all my students know that 50% of the profits from the classes, provide funding for an Apprentice Program offered to local teens. It is the Young Sparks Foundation that manages the program. So, not only will you be taking home a new personal skill but, you'll be providing an opportunity for disadvantaged youth to succeed in life, as well. Thank you for choosing this class and helping the community! ~Day
