Portrait Sculpture Intensive

Portrait Sculpture Intensive

This workshop is an opportunity for artists to sculpt a life-size portrait in clay, working directly from the model. Designed for all levels of ability, Rick Casali’s innovative teaching style embraces the French concept of “secret figure” – a knowledge/concept approach to understanding the Portrait. This unique 4 day workshop will consist of daily sculpture demos by Casali covering proportion, pose, geometric planes, and the anatomy of the eyes, nose, mouth, ears, and the forms of the hair. Thorough measurements of each model will be recorded as a reference.  Students will have their choice of a male or female model. 

Recommended for portrait painters, sculptors, illustrators, and computer animators.
