In this workshop, we’ll use traditional hand-building methods to create a portrait head in clay.

Students will experience working 3-dimensionally in the malleable, forgiving medium rendering accurate representation of a live model. Demonstration will be given on how to build the armature-base for the “head.” In addition, we will look closely at planes of the head, learn processes of sculpting, and approaches to modeling including detailing of facial characteristics and the use of tools.

Tuition includes the following supplies:

  • The fist bag of sculpture clay
  • A basic set of sculpting tools
  • Armature kit
