American Woodcarving School - Art School

The American Woodcarving School was founded in 1974 by Sculptor Michael Denike. Mr. Denike's dream...a school that's sole purpose is instructing and promoting the art of Woodcarving. The school holds regular day and evening classes 52 weeks out of the year, and approximately 6 weekend workshops per year.

The regular classes allow the student to work on whatever area they wish while under direction of a professional woodcarver. Weekend Workshops hosted by renowned woodcarvers from the US, Canada, and Europe, allow the more advanced student the chance to train under an artist of the highest level in his or her area of interest.

  1. I commend you on your article about Mickey Hudspath, and his chip mcarving. He is not only a great chip carver but a real gentleman. Whre in Georgia are you located? I am in Marietta and do wood carvings too. No web site , just carve and hang them on the wall, perhaps you would like to see some of them sometime while passing thru. My insperation was brought on by reading a book about Grinling Gibbons, ever heard of him? A wood carver of the 16th century. As far as I am concerned he may be one of the best ever. If you have never heard of you you may want to look him up. Thanks for youe interest in wood carving and good luck and good health, keep up the good work .
