"As a Work Study Artist at Sculpture Trails Outdoor Museum my work
ethic grew tremendously as an artist and my knowable of mold making,
iron casting, chasing, finishing and installing outdoor sculpture has
pushed me forward faster in 30 days than I ever expected. I was able to
build my first big Iron outdoor sculpture for the Exhibition and with
that experience in my pocket I feel I have made a huge jump forward in
my work as a an Artist." Robin Baker, Work Study Artist July 2010.

Participants are responsible for the cost of their sand at 25 cents a pound and iron at 40 cents a pound. The series of workshops will conclude with the opportunity for selected works to become part of the museum’s permanent collection. The furnace taps a max 800 lbs, so think big!
