During this workshop students will learn to look at the human figure objectively by breaking it down into its’ parts. Students will begin by sculpting the eyes, nose, mouth, and ears creating multiple tiles and small vignettes. This exercise will lead to creating complete a portrait out of clay. Each piece will be built solid and hollowed out for complete freedom while sculpting. The self-portraits will begin with general rules of proportion and will end with a complete detailed image of the sculptor. Anatomy, underlying bone structure, musculature, expression, clay and surface will be discussed. Underglaze decorating techniques will be discussed if time permits. This workshop is open to all skill levels.
