TIG, MIG, stick and gas welding are all available to our staff and students. [Photo & text: sa] During each workshop the Metal Shop Coordinator takes on a new assistant. The scrap metal used for student practice has become quite artistic. The pieces on display are the combined work of more than a dozen students.

Ron comments: ‘The kids have fun doing art for practice. This is how I practice’. This awesome many layered grill will star at many barbeques at Arcosanti. [Photo & text: sa]last_img
