Welding Class in February!
I wanted to let everyone know about a welding class I’ll be teaching in Los Alamos the weekend of February 22, 2013. Detailed information can be read in http://fullerlodgeartcenter.com/classes.shtml.
Candelaria’s Art Workshop
As a self taught Recycled artist I’m offering a week long course of teaching those who have always wanted to know and learn something about welding and using metal working tools and techniques. Now keeping in mind that I’m a recycle artist, this class is designed to help that person who has a project or sculpture idea and doesn’t know where to start but wants to use junk items or objects other than plastic there is no limits. I will assist you with your idea and show you the way to a new path of working with steel and found objects.
Now if you don’t have an idea/project in mind – no worries, we’ll come up with a project while you’re learning to play with the tools.
Being self taught I, I know the fear of taking the first step into the unknown world of working with loud, dangerous, sparking emitting and powerful tools. Mistakes, I’ve made many. Yet, without them I would not be constantly learning. SO Take the challenge and join me in taking the first step that will enhance your artist world.
Learn basic Mig welding, cut steel using a plasma cutting machine, grind/texture metal with angle grinders and learn simple metal shaping techniques on an anvil or a vise. Then mix in some free thinking sculpture design and art techniques. If possible I would recommend a student have a project already in mind. Now, if you don’t have an art project idea, no biggie. After you play with the tools I’m sure we can come up with a cool project to complete.
I would recommend students bring:
Leather gloves, leather shoes, long sleeve shirts and safety glasses if they have some. I will provide extra safety items as well.
Now let’s have fun making sparks and playing with the dangerous tools.
Happy New Year Everyone!!
I will be teaching some welding classes at the Fuller Lodge art center in Los Alamos, NM the last weekend in February and first weekend in March. There are class openings.
Plus, I will be offering some classes in my studio and at the Tarnoff art center in Pecos later this year as well.
I will be posting my event festival schedule in the next few weeks as well.
Have a Wonderful New Year!!
I would like to wish everyone a wonderful Holiday Season and a big thank you for making 2012 a successful year. Next up will be my 2013 show schedule.
Here’s a few images for next springs art work.
