Attendees Enjoyed Sculpting Class

The Vermilion Community Art Club held a sculpting class that was open to beginners and more advanced students alike. The class was held on March 31 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and continued on April 1 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the art room at J.R. Robson School. The class was organized by club member Eraine Wegiel and was taught by Kelly Clemmer, an artist from Wainwright who has been creating art since he was a young child.

Clemmer works with various art mediums such as paint, and clay sculpture, and used to make jewelry. He is also the chair of the Wainwright Arts Council, which organizes the Wainwright Art Show every February. Clemmer’s passion for art is evident in the way he teaches and shares his knowledge with others.

The class was a success, with attendees of all skill levels and ages coming together to learn and create. Clemmer started the class by demonstrating various sculpting techniques, such as building your armature, and then gave the students hands-on experience by guiding them through the sculpting process for their own unique sculpting idea.

Wegiel commented that she thought it was an amazing class, and said that any class that is held by the club and is not filled will be posted on their Facebook page. The Vermilion Community Art Club welcomes new members, and the registration fee is only $25 per year. The club offers 3-4 art classes a year and monthly paint till you faint events.

Clemmer was thrilled with how the class went, saying, “I am happy that everyone enjoyed the class and I hope they took away knowledge and caught the sculpting bug.” His passion for sculpting is contagious, and many of the students left the class feeling inspired and eager to continue exploring the world of sculpting.

The Vermilion Community Art Club is an organization that provides a supportive and creative space for artists to come together and learn from each other.
