The workshops are part of Lackawanna County’s ARTS Engage! program. Students will work with national professional artists and Keystone College faculty on pouring and sculpting iron. It also helps the participants to develop self-esteem, participate in team-building events and learn social and arts skills.

The schedule and time for the classes are : May 13, 15, 20, 22, and 29 and June 3 and 5 from 5 to 8 p.m at Keystone College art studio and The AFA Gallery. The students and artist mentors will cast their sculptures June 8 at The Scranton Iron Furnaces during the Arts on Fire Festival. They will finish and paint the castings June 10. After the event, the pieces will be exhibited at various galleries through Lackawanna County.
