Project Details

Stone sculpture workshop

Eugene Jankowski from Stanley Lewis Stone Sculpture Academy (www.jatsura.com) : Eugene has been a long-term professional stone sculpture teacher for our weekly stone sculpture workshops. He has established himself at the youth center with his teachings, and has become an important factor for the success of the stone sculpture workshops. His knowledge, commitment, and involvement will continue to contribute to the co-op extension of our current project. Our sculptures are on display at the Centre and can be previewed on our website.

Every Thursday 4-7PM, Eugene teaches stone sculpture in our sculpture studio. Please register at the office and inquire about the lessons.
