Rock Sculpting Retreat

INSTRUCTION: Frank Bitonti

REFLECTION: 

Bring photos, a sketch pad with drawings, ideas and/or notes. What motivates or inspires you? Answering those questions will initiate the creative process. Consider what form the piece should take: abstract, representational or iconic. What would you like to express? Which configuration would best represent the essence of our vision? An appropriate rock choice will be easy, after some thoughtful contemplation and stone examination.
