Workshop Description

Participants will build a figure in clay with a live model for reference. 

Instruction will be geared toward interpreting observations of general human proportion, gesture, and basic anatomy to capture the essence of the pose.  Students will sculpt in clay and will have an opportunity to work in self-hardening clay and take their pieces home at the end of the class.  

Instruction will include different options for finishing sculptures, i.e. bronze casting; casting in resin, fiberglass or other materials; 3D scanning and 3D laser printing.
