Basic clay experience will be helpful.

Body Image and The Figure

This workshop will examine the beauty of imperfection in the human figure.  All body types, including the full-bodied or older figure, can be evocative, sensual, and emotionally expressive. Learn to capture personality through facial features and gesture, which create narrative.

Hollow-building techniques will be used to create a proportionate, anatomically convincing figure.  Learn how to sculpt an expressive head and hands.  Bring images and reference material that interest you to learn to “read” photographic information to understand the 3-dimensional cues they offer.

Artists of all experience levels are welcome.
