About This Activity

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Wednesday, November 16, 2016.

Have you ever wondered what happens when you heat aluminum to 1700°? Discover the amazing world of cast metal sculpture in this beginner's class! Metal casting is the process of forming metal through making a mold, usually out of sand, melting metal until it is molten liquid, and pouring the metal into the mold. We will go through the whole process from idea to completed piece in this four week class. An emphasis will be placed on safety and creative fun.


Artist instructor Jess Bergman Tank has BA degrees in both Studio Arts and Art History from the University of Minnesota. She is a mixed media and public artist working in South Minneapolis with a focus on environmental and social activism. Jess has been involved with artistic Metal Casting for several years and delights in spreading the love of casting with others and growing the casting community.
