KEYSTONE, SD: Mount Rushmore National Memorial will be hosting three more clay sculpting workshops this summer. Sculptor in Residence, Dustin Baker, will be leading the sessions on the Borglum View Terrace. Baker, a professional artist from Georgia, returned to Mount Rushmore this year for his second summer in the park.
Half-day clay workshops will be offered from 12 pm – 4 pm on the following dates.
Participants may reserve a spot by calling (605) 574-3159 or registration is available at the park in the Information Center up until noon on the day of the workshop. To offer personal instruction and attention, the class size is set at 10 participants. Registration is on a first-come, first serve basis.
The workshops are free of charge, including tools and materials. Participants are asked to come prepared to stand and work outside and are encouraged to bring a hat, sunscreen, rain jacket and water with them. Participants are responsible for providing their own transportation to and from Mount Rushmore, and the purchase of an $11 annual parking pass.
Artists of all skill levels and ages are welcome to register. The workshop is designed to be educational and entertaining, allowing participants to explore their own creativity, with Mount Rushmore National Memorial serving as an inspirational backdrop.
