$137 for a Six-Week Sculpting Class (Up to $275 Value)

Students attend their assigned session once a week after selecting the start date that best suits their schedule, space permitting. Workshops focus on the art of carving aerated cement, a form of stone that lends itself to gentle curves and biological geometries. This Groupon does not include the materials fee ($15).

Murphy’s Studio

As the middle child in a large family of lawyers, it took Carole Murphy 40 years to embrace her artistic destiny. Now nearly 20 years after her first exhibition at the Robert Paul Gallery in Burlington, Vermont, Murphy’s works have been seen in more than two dozen galleries, museums, and art centers. An established expert in the field, Carole contributed a spotlight piece on her specialty medium, aerated cement, in a 2007 issue of Sculpture Journal, and her 15 years of teaching experience ensure classes engage participants with student-designed projects and individualized attention.

Customer Reviews

Attentive and professional instruction. I am not artistic in the least and was given a coupon for these lessons. It was a pleasure to find such a relaxed atmosphere. This was a lot of fun.
