Portrait Sculpture Winter 2019
This class is for beginner and intermediate sculptors. Learn how to create realistic and beautiful portrait sculptures in clay. Initially you’ll learn the ‘golden rules’ for making a clay face look like a real face before moving on to tackle a live model. Classes will include demonstrations of each stage of creating a portrait, with emphasis on the overall facial structure as well as a focus on individual features. You’ll also learn how to hollow your piece for firing as well as finish it for display. While leaving room for artistic expression, the goal of this course is to teach a simple, systematic approach to producing ceramic portraits that’s also fun.
All materials are provided but students are welcome to bring their own tools if they have them. The $30 material fee includes use of sculpting tools, clay, stands, firing of the final piece and a live model.
