Mountain View LISA students visited Art Castings of Colorado

Mountain View LISA students in Arts & Culture 1 visited Art Castings of Colorado to learn about the process of making a bronze sculpture and the opportunity to look at all the different career paths within our community whether it be a skilled trade or college bound track.

This “lost wax” casting process was also used by the Ancient Greeks. Students are currently studying art and literature from this time period and were able to connect their learning to our local sculpture community.

Students were especially excited that sculptures of Buzz Lightyear from Pixar Entertainment were in the casting process – “To Infinity and Beyond!”
