Master sculptors trained on a small scale often starting with parts of the face. Working in that tradition before tackling the full head in a separate class, learn classical sculpting skills: working the clay, how to measure, use equipment, observe and criticize your efforts. Your finished work whether that be a nose, ear, lips or eye will be a momento like no other. During this taster session we’ll be working from plaster cast body parts – cast from real morals.
