A new venture by Henderson Sculptural Arts, Inc. nestled in the lovely countryside of Alpine California surrounded by rolling hills and right next to the Cleveland National Forest, Alpine Skies Studio is the perfect setting for you to discover, (or rediscover!) your inner artist, hone existing skills or discover a new medium or technique…. and “get away from it all”. For more information about Alpine click here.

Master sand sculptor David Robert Henderson will be offering and developing classes for all levels of students in the art of artificial rock construction, water feature design, cement and sand sculpture.  Visiting artists and special events will also be added as they become available.  All current class descriptions are listed below.    

“During our ever increasingly hectic lives taking the time to stop…  Rest…..and “smell the roses” is now more important than ever.  And by adding the exploration of our creative sides we then find a whole new freedom that can ease our stress, increase our happiness, and actually lengthen our lives…  So I invite you to come up to the “Mountain Top”, breath in the fresh air, and taste a little bit of heaven by tapping into that divine part of yourself that’s just waiting to be discovered!  I think you’ll be glad you did”.   – Dave Henderson
