Portraits in Clay: sculpting the figure objectively

Jamie Bates Slone

Tuition $1,300
Code C0303-21

During this workshop students learn to look at the human figure objectively by breaking it down into elemental parts. Students begin by sculpting the eyes, nose, mouth and ears, creating multiple tiles and small vignettes. This exercise leads to the creation of two portraits: one stoic and one highly expressive. Anatomy, underlying bone structure, musculature and expression are discussed. Students also have the opportunity to explore decorating their work with underglazes using airbrushes and spray guns.
