Location Disclaimer: Sculpting is not usually a neat and tidy process. Since our classrooms are heavily used and we want our students to express themselves in an unrestricted manner, our classrooms are not immaculate by any stretch of the imagination. Although we try to keep our space as tidy as possible we do not suggest you wear your best clothes to our classes.
