Art in Earth:

creating sculpture inspired by the earth

Vesper Atelier is a workshop where aspiring artists refine their vision and gain an understanding of how sculpture relates to the earth. Explore sculpture and public art at whatever intensity or commitment level you wish:

Community Classes  (1-3 sessions) Learn basic sculpture skills and how to transform a concept into art in a supportive and fun environment

Group Workshops  are customized one-day classes for you and a group of up to 6 friends, facilitated by a professional sculptor.
