Call to sculptors, artists and art lovers!
Welcome to the 16th California Sculptors Symposium April 22 -29, 2018
Join us in celebrating our 16th California Sculptors Symposium at Camp Ocean Pines in Cambria! The first symposium in 2003 introduced a program that welcomed educators, artists and students to an energetic, creative environment overlooking the Pacific Ocean. California Sculptors Symposium(CSS) continues to feature lectures and demonstrations by premier sculptors. Artists of all levels are welcome. Whether you are a seasoned professional  or a novice, you will enjoy the camaraderie of creating art among like minded people.
In a meadow near the main lodge , sculptors setup their work space: a canopy for shade, a workbench and tools. Compressed air and electricity are provided. Under a large communal tent, beginners gather to learn from instructors about stone, tools,and how to work safely. Clay artists work with life models.Knowledgeable vendors of sculpture tools, material and stone are on site to help you select what you need to begin or finish a work of art.
 Camp Ocean Pines is nestled on a hilltop surrounded by a Monterey Pine forest. The nearby town of Cambria has lovely shops , restaurants and beautiful beaches . Participants can sign for a private tour of sculpture at the Heart Castle a short drive away.
Lodging at Camp Ocean Pines consists of environmentally friendly bunk-style cabins and tent camping sites. Three delicious  meals served everyday in the main lodge.

On Saturday April 28 – 10am to 5pm  Participants show their artwork in an outdoor and indoor show open to the public!
