Agreed. I took the class called "art metals" or something (aka studio problems and a couple other names so you can get multiple credits, and also can be taken thru art dept.). Not much chance of getting certified in the end, but a good way for a hobbyist to explore various technologies in a well-stocked shop for a reasonable price. Take it with Gingras if you can fit him in your schedule.

austincc is Austin Community College - this is not spam. I have no connection other than as a satisfied graduate of four of their welding and art metal courses. Whoever appointed you to your position of spam cop made a mistake...

The site at the posted address is a bit spamish (it has pop-ups, e.g.). The actual ACC site is

not .com. An alternate address is

Another place to check out is the Sculpture Academy of Austin. Being undecided as to how much schooling I needed/wanted for art metal I opted to sign up for their classes instead of ACC. ACC definitely has a more thorough curriculum (although I believe Sculpture Academy is just getting started and trying to add more classes), but the Sculpture Academy is more convenient for location and time by far for me.

ACC also has a fully stocked and supplied, indoor shop/work area. It also has a full range of name-brand, quality equipment, including oxy-acet, MIG, TIG, stick, plasma, etc., as well as grinders, drill press, chop saw, etc., etc., etc. It also has giant, communal gas tanks which means you just go to a torch and light it, without having to tinker with regulators all the time or replace empty tanks just when you're getting up some momentum. It also has big piles and bins of scrap material to work with, a bonus for a "found" artist like me.
But those are just my preferences, I guess. A semester doesn't seem like a long investment to me.
