Portrait Sculpting Workshop
on mood & gesture

April 13th & 14th
Sat 10 am – 5pm
Sun 11am – 5pm

$145 (+ $25 materials fee)

Come play with creating mood and gesture with clay in this weekend workshop!

We’ll start the day with some inspirational sculpture images, progress to a fun gestural drawing exercise, then dive right into our portrait study.

Working from the live model, we will focus on the underlying movement of the pose. We will learn about structural anatomy of the head, experiment with texture and keep the details loose! Creativity and expression encouraged!

All levels welcome. Share the Facebook event with your friends here.

Clay and a basic armature are included. We will be completing just the clay sculpt in this workshop. (Additional classes available for hollowing/finishing processes, or you can complete on your own.)
