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!
See you soon,

Only twelve years ago, while seeking a change in careers, I found new inspiration after working with a successful Los Angeles metal artist, Brad Howe. Inspired by Brad's life, I completed Welding classes and then moved to the Bay Area to pursue my dream of becoming metal sculptor myself. I gained tremendous experience in Bay Area custom fabrication shops, building architecture, furniture, and even large scale art pieces by prominent artists such as Anish Kapoor. Since 2007, I've worked off and on at American Steel Studios in Oakland with metal sculptor, Karen Cusolito. I have been a member of the locally infamous Flaming Lotus Girls artist collective since 2008. Sculptures designed and built by the FLG are interactive, usually huge, and always incorporate both fire & lighting effects. Although almost every FLG project was built for installation at the Burning Man Festival, many pieces have since traveled across the globe for various other cultural events and music festivals. My time volunteering with the FLG collective inspired me to share my knowledge as a metal artist and begin hosting classes.
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!
It's important that my students are aware that 50% of the profit from all the classes I host provide funding for an Art Apprentice Program, which is managed by me, as the Young Sparks Foundation. org
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!
