Modeling a portrait from life is an extremely effective way to improve the understanding of form and learn clay modeling skills.  In this 5 day intensive  class, students will work from life at full scale, in oil-based clay, on a wooden armature.  Emphasis will be placed on developing observation skills, creating sound structure, understanding proportions, and modeling form. 


Teaching methods will include demonstrations, brief lectures, and individual feedback to students. The course is appropriate to sculptors of all levels as well as draftsmen/painters who are interested studying the form through clay modeling."

*Note: The course will focus on clay modeling only. If students wish to cast their finished portrait, they may do so independently.
