Car Part Art

Car Part Art is made up of recycled car parts. We fabricate pieces to get our creative juices flowing and give the students an outlet for creativity. Sales help fund program supplies, taking students to car shows and racing events.


Like founder Gregg “3G” Sheldon, many of today’s students are not traditional learners; they struggle with sheer memorization tasks and regurgitating information, however excess at problem solving and fixing tangible things.  Pair that with continuous  dismantling of industrial arts classes like automotive shop, welding, and carpentry for an increased emphasis on the core subjects of reading, writing, and mathematics and there are not many options for these types of learners.

This has created a life-skills gap where fewer and fewer high school students are able to learn a trade such as basic automotive maintenance and the safe execution of minor repairs which would set these students up for success in the future. Additionally this has also lead to the Automotive Industry suffering from a lack of skilled technicians.

Auto Shop Vocational (ASV) graduates will have a base knowledge of all the duties of a C-tech (lube tech) and most of what a B-tech (maintenance tech) needs to know with some knowledge of an A-tech. ASV is a 10-week program developed and taught by Gregg “3G” Sheldon, a Social Worker turned Automotive Technician, who wants to help fill this gap in the skilled auto trade industry.

Our Story

AutoShop Vocational was founded on the premise that not all learners are the same and that vocational training was becoming less and less prominent in the Colorado Springs area.  The idea came about after years of traditional schooling and full time jobs that were never the right fit.  It wasn’t until founder Gregg Sheldon, who was himself a car guy, realized he himself wanted to be an auto shop teacher and develop his own curriculum and educational program.

ASV has high standards for its curriculum and is taught by an ASE certified teacher, who is also licensed by the state of Colorado to teach. Additionally, the Founder/ instructor has a bachelor's degree in Psychology and has formal training in Automotive Technology. We are constantly open to hearing new ideas and as any good automotive technician will tell you, we are open to creative problem solving and techniques.
