Students are shown the techniques used in making a free hand, 12” to 15” imaginative and original character sculpture. Open to all skill levels, beginner to advanced, the class focuses on creating heads with neck and breastplates, hands and feet out of air dry clay. The construction of wire armature bodies for the figure is also covered. A kit with the basic materials is available for purchase with the student’s choice of white or terra cotta clay.
This online class will be taught through the video-conferencing platform Zoom, and your teacher will use Google Classroom or email to facilitate further communication with you and your classmates.
