We’re honored to announce a partnership with Scottsdale Arts and the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Scottsdale to bring their program participants an immersive sculptural workshop experience that they won’t forget!

The workshop is multi-week immersive learning experience, where students will be using upcycled materials to co-create a collaborative sculpture addressing issues surrounding responsible water use. Through the creative process, the students will be exposed to and gain skills in ceramics, metalworking, and aluminum casting, and develop a better understanding of what it means to be an informed and accountable citizen of our planet.

Resident artist Elana Novali worked in collaboration with Norm Pratt of Scottsdale Arts and Cosanti Foundation Director of Education Rob Jackson to create the five day curriculum. Over the course of the month of July, three separate groups of students from around the greater Scottsdale region participated in the fabrication of component parts for a sculpture that will be displayed as part of both the Arcosanti Convergence and Canal Convergence Festival in 2019.
