Have you ever looked at a sculpture and wondered, “How did the artist do that?” In this three-day workshop, students will learn how to create a likeness in clay using a portrait model as the subject. As you sculpt, you will explore ways of creating a variety of moods. There will be instructor demonstrations throughout the workshop, including a demo of how to capture facial expressions. There will also be discussions on finishing your sculpture, applying cold patinas on fired clay, and simple mold making techniques.
