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.
The 2021 Sculptor-in-Residence is Sean Hunter Williams. Sean graduated with a BFA from the University of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, then spent 4 years living in Berlin, Germany before moving back to Vermont to apprentice with his dad at Barre Sculpture Studios, where he learned the art of stone carving. He has spent the last 8 years doing public and private commissions, and is looking forward to expanding his studio practice this summer at the park. Photo by Rachel Cohen.
During the summer months, workshops ranging from clay modeling and mold making to landscape painting are held regularly at the Saint-Gaudens National Historical Park and online. Programs for local youth include a weeklong STEAM camp, integrating the sciences, math, and the arts. We also support school-group visits by funding transportation grants.

Open studio hours will be in-person Wednesdays – Sundays, 9:00 am-12:00 noon and 1:00-4:00 pm
