Graduated from the University of Vermont with a degree in fine arts in the late 90s. Upon graduation he moved into the carving community in Central Vermont. While working as a resident sculptor at the Vermont Marble Exhibit, he carved a 5000 pound block of Vermont Marble. In 2000 Scott relocated to the Boston area where he started exhibiting his work in many galleries and universities around town. He is a member of The New England Sculptors Association and has been teaching stone sculpture for over ten years at several major sculptural institutions in the Boston area including the Decordova Museum School. In 2010 he founded Scott's Stone Carving Classes SSCC. His teaching approach is well regarded and he seeks to unlock his students fascination for the stone carving process.
Reviews of Scott Cahaly
Attended: Stone Carving Saturdays
“Instructor” was a nice guy but didn’t teach much. He gave us tools and just had us start carving. He also randomly selected people to choose the best stones first. I had an idea of what I wanted to make but couldn’t with the stone I got.
In the future, I would suggest a lower priced class for 3 hours (5 is a lot and $140 is too much to do it more) where we all get the same stones and try to make the same things (few options). He should also spend 1/2 hour demonstrating some basic techniques first.
