The MARBLE/marble Symposium has been sharing the art and joy of stone carving in a non-competitive, culturally diverse atmosphere for over 30 years. Participants of any age and experience level are welcome, from first-timers to pros.
Whatever your artistic style, from abstract to figurative or representational, our instructors can help you achieve your vision. Learn a variety of carving techniques under the guidance of top-tier sculptors and a team of highly skilled support staff at our spectacular Rocky Mountain Symposium grounds.
Our 8-day workshop costs $1250 and includes:
• A block of beautiful Colorado marble
• A fully-equipped outdoor carving site in a spectacular setting
• Unlimited use of tools—hand, electric, and pneumatic
• Daily open-forum classes, demos, and workshops
• One-on-one instruction throughout the workshop
Each session follows the same curriculum and is appropriate for every level of experience—from beginner to advanced.
