K & K Sculpture Studio Reopens this Saturday, July 1st, 2017

After a 3-month break, K & K Studios is offering sculpture classes again. We reopen with good intentions of inspiring others and honing your sculpting and molding skills.

Many of our present students will be working on finishing some of their projects. Some are casting to bronze, others to resin. Some projects are just being properly molded for their future production. Some students are learning a new hobby.

If you wish to try your hand sculpting, feel free to contact us by the form at the end of this post or email us at knkstudio@yahoo.com

Below are just some of their efforts assisted by K & K Studios:
