Sculpture workshops are co-sponsored by the Saint-Gaudens Memorial and the Saint-Gaudens National Historical Park (SGNHP). The classes are taught by the Sculptor-in-Residence. This program was initiated by the Memorial in 1969 and is the oldest artist residency in the National Park Service system

This season, due to COVID-19 restrictions, all studio visits and sculpture workshops will be conducted on-line.
