Sculpting The Human Figure
May 24, 2020 – May 30, 2020
Jamie Bates Slone
In this workshop students will learn to view the human figure objectively by breaking it down into parts. You will begin by sculpting the eyes, nose, mouth and ears creating multiple tiles and small vignettes. This exercise leads to creating a complete portrait out of clay. Class discussions include exploration of the anatomy, underlying bone structure, musculature, expression clay and surface. Participants will also explore decorating their work with underglazes using airbrushes and spray guns. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
