This hands-on class for teens will expand upon everything learned in Welding I and provide the opportunity to build a small wall or yard sculpture. You will practice with the tools and MIG welder learned in Welding I and will learn basic fabrication techniques in creating your art piece or in joining our art vehicle apprentices in practicing on an art vehicle in progress. Materials will be steel and/or found metal - feel free to bring your own metal pieces if you have something specific you'd like to create. Safety instruction and safety gear included.
This class is for teens 13-18. Pre-requisite is Welding I or equivalent experience. Requires registration and waiver signed by a parent or guardian. Please wear solid closed-toe shoes, jeans or workpants and long sleeved shirts. A bandana or sock hat to wear under the helmet is optional. You garments should be OK to potentially damage.
. This project - the art vehicle build and associated workshops - has been generously funded by a grant from the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance.
