Welding instructor Cynthia Christian

Welding instructor Cynthia Christian

 NEW in Spring 2015:  Art & Sculpture Welding

RCC Workforce is proud to announce that welding instructor Cynthia Christian will be teaching courses in the sought-after skill of welding for art and sculpture. Christian, pictured, received her initial welding training while serving on active duty in the U. S. Army. She continued to hone her professional welding skills while working at Newport News Shipbuilding and eventually became an instructor for their welding school.

Christian has been able to merge her creativity and vision as an accomplished artist with welding to create art/sculpture using metals and other materials as a medium.
