16th Annual California Sculptors Symposium
April 22 to April 29th, 2018
Camp Ocean Pines
1473 Randall Drive, Cambria, California 93428
Beginners are welcome! Our teachers are delighted to teach the basics to get you going with as much (or as little) instruction as you prefer.
Comfortable and warm clothes. Toiletries. A new sculpture that you would like to work on or a sculpture in progress. A full list of recommended essentials will be provided after you register.
In most cases, someone will lend you a tool. This year we are providing one or two powered air hammers for students and newbies to try out stone carving.
For other media, clay can be purchased on-site. Wood can be provided if you specify what you want to work on ahead of time by emailing us – click here to contact us.
Art City has ample stones available for purchase and tools are also for sale from Stone Sculpture Supply at the beginning of the week.
For the money that our attendee’s pay, they are entitled to a field, which has some limited shade tent available, electrical for power tools, and an air compressor hook-up for pneumatic tools.
The symposium is held at a camp. The lodging is bunk style and there are ten bunks per cabin. We tend to fill up all bottom bunks first.
There are ten cabins. Each cabin has a toilet with sink and separate shower with on-demand hot water.
You are also welcome to tent on premises.
The food is one of the best parts of the camp! Three square meals are provided each day and they are delicious, plentiful and punctual. Accommodations for vegetarians can be made if requested, as well as other dietary restrictions.
Expect to have fun, meet great people, and learn something. The entire week is designed with a beautiful arc that allows people to get comfortable, get busy, and let loose. It is very relaxing to sculpt by the sea. It’s a workshop paradise.
