What you'll learn in this clay class:

The Art of Portrait Sculpture
“In the footsteps of the Masters”

This intimate workshop will introduce you to the art of portrait sculpture. During the four sessions we will complete a portrait bust in  (oil based) plasteline clay while learning how to work from a live model as well as with picture references of the same model. The students will:
  • Improve their capability of seeing and understanding human form.

  • Gain a better understanding of the human head, main structure, planes and basic anatomy of the face features and neck.

  • Learn various sculpture techniques with an special emphasis on the “sum of the profiles” modeling approach. 

  • Become familiar with the ancient tradition of portrait sculpture, reviewing relevant master work. Its philosophical implications and the relevance of this art form in current times.


    *Students must bring their own plasteline (oil based) clay.
