In over twenty years, Carving Studio and Sculpture Center programs have grown to include seasonal weeklong and weekend workshops in most sculptural media, college level courses for area institutions, community and high school classes, artistic residencies, international exchange programs with Peru and exhibits in our gallery space.

The Winter Studios Capital Campaign grew from our need of more designated indoor areas for students and artists in residence. In 2008 we purchased the former Vermont Marble Company Coping Shop, adjacent to our main building. Funds raised through the capital campaign will be used to renovate the historic 1890’s marble structure for year-round classroom and studio space. Please contact us to receive a Winter Studios Capital Campaign prospectus.
