Planning ahead? Working with young people? Your organization may be
able to apply for RISCA Arts in Education Grants, which may cover part
of the cost of running a class or workshop in Rhode Island.

Please note that while these classes do not include instruction in
carving letters or inscriptions, many students have used some
techniques learned to do letter carving later on their own.
