Dive deep in this beginning and continuing level youth workshop. Students take an immersive step into weeklong study, becoming young artisans along the way. Learn to fuse, cut, bend, and shape metal in this intensive introduction to stick welding, also known as arc welding, and oxy-acetylene torch cutting. Guidance will be given on the safe and effective operation of welding equipment. You will also be exposed to theory, principles, and extensive techniques that let you design and create your own independent projects. PREREQUISITE: Youth ARC Welding I (formerly called Youth Welded Sculpture).
NOTE: This class is being held in its normal location indoors in the ARC Classroom. We have measured and indicated safe, physically-distanced work stations for the 6 students and faculty member(s).
