Open to all skill levels, beginner to advanced, the class focuses on creating heads with neck and breastplates, hands and feet out of cone 6 clay. The construction of wire armature bodies for the dolls is also covered. Tuition includes clay, glazes and bisque firing. A separate materials fee of $20 is payable to the instructor at the first class.
Covid Policy for Students in this Class
The Art League will no longer require masks in our classrooms, store, gallery, or offices. However, we ask that our students, faculty, and staff use caution and thoughtfulness when they are close to others for prolonged periods. For example, students using shared equipment in the classroom studios are strongly encouraged to wear masks for their safety, and the consideration of those around them, when in tight proximity to others.Masks are also recommended if your home community risk level is high (Alexandria is currently at medium risk), or you’ve been told by a health professional to wear a mask based on your personal risk factors. The Art League reserves the right to reinstate mandatory masks, and additional covid safety policies should we feel local conditions warrant such action.
Most supplies and supply lists may also be obtained at The Art League Store in the Torpedo Factory, room 217. The store hours are 11am – 5pm, Wednesday through Sunday. We offer curbside pickup at The Art League Store, allowing our customers to buy over the phone or online and then drive to our location at 105 North Union Street (or “curb”) to pick it up, without having to leave your car. Call ahead here: 703-548-8127. We offer a price-matching guarantee to our customers based on the advertised price for a specific product. If a rival offers the same product for a lower advertised price, The Art League Store will match the lower price.
