The expanding field of decorative concrete owes much of its success to the development of more durable concrete. Those who install decorative concrete must know the basics and have good technical skills to be able to place and finish durable concrete. But there is one additional requirement: the ability to be creative with color, texture, and shape—the personal need for artistry.

In response to the need for creativity, Concrete Construction and the Decorative Concrete Council (DCC), a council of the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC), will present 10 live demonstrations at the World of Concrete in Las Vegas this year.

The Artistry in Concrete Demonstrations at the World of Concrete will provide decorative concrete artists with a 10x10-foot concrete “canvas” to be creative. Here the artist, Gerald Taylor, creates an image on concrete with an angle grinder and diamond bit, using stains to complete the image.
