Sculpture Workshops

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.

Sean Hunter Williams is returning as the 2023 Sculptor-in-Residence. Sean graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.  After four years in Berlin, Germany, he returned to Vermont to apprentice with his father, Jerry Williams, at Barre Sculpture Studios, where he learned the art of stone carving. Over the last nine years he has  completed both public and private commissions and is expanding his studio practice at the park.


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.
