The Art of Metal Work
Interested in learning how to use metal as an artistic medium? This workshop will cover the basic use of a plasma torch in the design and fabrication of metal art pieces, as well as the safety precautions necessary in these practices. After the initial lessons, students will create their own project, based on either the culture or scenery of Taos. There will be field trips to local galleries and parks to explore possible inspirations.

About the Instructor
Lisa Regan is a self-taught metal sculptor, and the owner of Garden Deva Sculpture Company in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In addition to creating pieces over her own, Lisa has been teaching metalwork classes in her studio for over ten years. Lisa has taught dozens of students from all over the country the techniques and art behind metal sculpting and fabricating. Lisa uses a plasma torch to cut designs in various types of metal. She bends, rolls, and welds the metal to produce art with the goal of connecting people to playful, fun energy, following the belief that a joyous spirit leads to a happier life.
