About this project:

The scope of this project is vast and includes students from 65 school districts, which span ten counties in upstate New York.

Metal Trades students put their classroom knowledge to use as they hone their skills during class time. In the shop is where the classroom lessons come alive. Instructors demonstrate techniques as students watch and then practice these different methods. Students employ their newly learned skills as they cut, grind, weld, and brush their artwork into sculptures. Community members, teachers, staff and students donate recycled materials from their homes, farms and businesses to craft these works of art. Some of this work is done independently, some as group projects, but all are done under the watchful eyes and guidance of the Metal Trades instructors.
