Pellettieri Stone Carvers' Academy

Pellettieri Stone Carvers’ Academy, Inc. promotes awareness and appreciation of the activity of stone carving and provides training in its traditional techniques. Through the Stone Carver in the Classroom Program young people are introduced to stone carving who would likely never have been aware of it.

The grant from CCS enables them to provide classroom visits to schools that do not have the funds to pay for them. Sharing the ancient traditional methods of stone carving offers students another option to an increasingly sedentary, information-based culture.
