Sculpture School offers hands-on learning programs for kids in the Mad River Valley of Vermont. We work with power tools, construction materials and recyclables to provoke curiosity and practice creativity. Every project provides an opportunity for kids to learn tool safety in an environment that encourages experimentation and learning through trial-and error. Sculpture School was created by Eddie Merma in September 2014.
Every project ends with a community event to celebrate the creative work. We invite families, friends and neighbors to interactive exhibitions, soapbox races, and movie screenings. Sculpture School programs have been hosted at Knoll Farm in Fayston, Vermont, Waitsfield Elementary School, Pony Farm in Moretown, and at the Taplin family workshop in Warren.
Over the years many friends have shared their time and creativity with kids in the shop. From screen printing to sewing, everyone contributes their individual skillsets for the learning of the group.
Peer learning is a valuable part of our learning environment. Local teens volunteer their time and skills to help kids manifest their ideas. We are currently seeking shop apprentices for spring and summer 2018. For more information please contact Eddie at firstname.lastname@example.org
