The Lake of the Ozarks Woodcarvers Club sponsored a realistic human form carving class in August held at the Community of Christ Church at 42 Sunset Drive in Camdenton. Stu Martin from Goddard, Kansas taught the seminar. Stu has been a full-time carver for over thirty years, and has taught all over the country. Giving the students one-on-one instruction, Stu taught them about the anatomy of the face with respect to carving. The students carved on their choice of Native American bust, mountain man bust, pirate bust, or Santa’s, and finished with some elaborate, beautiful carvings.
