All Levels Welcome
Location:
395 Seabrook Road - Studio E
Instructor:

This class will cover anatomical proportions and basic anatomy of the head to complete two pieces, an écorché of the human head and neck and a nuanced portrait of a live model. We will use the planes of the face to obtain a general likeness and then move forward with different ways of modeling the nose, lips, ears, and eyes using specific modeling tools. Anatomical rendering issues will be studied related to aging, race, and facial expressions. Certain surface finishing and mounting techniques will also be covered. This class includes 25lbs of low-fire clay, firing, and a live model.
