A new venture by Henderson Sculptural Arts, Inc. nestled in the lovely countryside of Alpine California surrounded by rolling hills and right next to the Cleveland National Forest, Alpine Skies Studio is the perfect setting for you to discover, (or rediscover!) your inner artist, hone existing skills or discover a new medium or technique.
“During our increasingly hectic lives taking the time to stop…rest…and “smell the roses” is now more important than ever. By adding the exploration of our creative sides we then fine a whole new freedom that can ease our stress, increase our sense of joy and happiness, and actually lengthen our lives. So I invite you to come up to the “mountain top”, breath in the fresh air, and taste a little bit of heaven by tapping into that divine part of yourself that’s waiting to be discovered. I think you’ll be glad you did!”
– David Robert Henderson, Founder/Instructor
