Carving Programs for Schools

The creative energies of your students

Our in-depth carving program results in full 3D stone sculptures, hands-on learning, and boosts the creative confidence and imagination of students from kindergarten to grade 8.

A rich learning opportunity

Carving is much more that a fun activity. Students learn about sculpting, rocks and minerals, nature, and more. And their carving, which they can take home, will enrich the learning experience.
