The Art of Portraiture – Please join me for an intensive 2-day study of how to design, construct, and sculpt the portrait in clay.  The focus will then be on a very careful study of the regions, planes, muscles, and forms of the head, neck, and shoulders. Students will learn the key  landmarks and structure with an overview of the anatomy of the skull. As you learn the techniques of measuring and observation, it is also important to understand that the art of sculpting the portrait is equally important. There will be discussion and demonstrations throughout the two days.  The workshop concludes with a discussion about the mold-making process as well as the different methods and materials to cast with. An  armature will be assembled in class. It is suitable for beginner to advanced artists. 
March- Sat 28 & Sun 29, 2019.  3pm-6pm   $250 all materials furnished

The Beauty of the Female Figure– This workshop will stress the governing principles which facilitate sculptors creating a reclining and seated female figure. I will share my insights of the figure, the female anatomy, to create a dynamic sculptural composition. Students will be encouraged to see and think of the body’s landscape in terms of juxtaposed forms, weights, rhythms, and balance in capturing the character and expression of the model.  The class will work from a live model.  These sessions will be augmented by illustrated lectures and hands-on demonstrations. Water-based clay will be used to construct an 18-inch female figure. This workshop is suitable for beginner to advanced students. Figure armature will be assembled in class all materials furnished.
