SCULPTING A PORTRAIT IN CLAY:
In this four (4) session workshop participants will receive basic instruction on using photos and working with a live model to complete a realistic 3-D clay portrait sculpture (head, neck, and possibly top part of the chest). Clay has been used throughout the centuries to create beautiful and enduring works of art. Clay is a strong, tough, durable, and timelessly beautiful material for creating art. From the very earliest civilizations to the present time, portrait sculptures made in clay have been one of the most consistent and reliable art forms to survive the test of time. The skills learned in this workshop can be used to produce treasured portrait sculptures of loved ones, friends, or creative whimsy. From building an armature to applying finishing touches, sculpting techniques will be emphasized in a step-by-step process to complete an anatomically correct and lifelike representation of the human head. A male model will pose for 2 sessions and there will be 2 sessions working from photos of the model for a total of 4 sessions. Instructor is James Fatata. Beginners and advanced sculptors will receive instruction appropriate to their level of experience and ability.
