Clay Identity: sculpting busts
This two-week workshop focuses on exploring personal identity and storytelling through the creation of figurative ceramic busts. Students create life-casts of their heads and shoulders using plaster gauze. Clay is pressed into these molds to quickly create a clay replica of each student that is then used as the foundation for each student’s work. Class discussions on visual storytelling and idea generation lays the foundation for the work. Students are encouraged to explore topics of identity or life experience to create work that has personal significance or engages in topics that interest each person.
