Through demonstrations and individual critiques, students learn the rudiments of creating a life size, ready-to-fire clay bust from life. Beginning with armature building and clay application techniques, continuing through principles of measuring, structure, anatomy, composition, expression and surface finish, this workshop gives students a comprehensive overview of the ideas central to making compelling and structurally sound portrait sculpture. Tuition includes two bags of clay. Model and firing fees are extra.
