Other tool recommendations (not required, but helpful) will be provided to students who sign up.

The goal is to create a finished clay portrait and to learn observation and anatomy in the traditional figurative methods of the great masters. If students wish to preserve their creation, I will share the learning materials for making a plaster waste-mold, or they can send their creation to one of the nearby foundries to have it cast in another material.

Once there are 6 students signed up, confirmation details will be sent.

To sign up, please send a message via the contact form on the website.
