In this weekend workshop, you can learn how to sculpt your favorite person whether it be your child, your partner, your lover, or your best friend. This is not only a wonderful way to get to know your family, friends, or loved one but also it is a great study of the human face, the portrait, or nature's forms. If you are a two-dimensional artist or a three dimensional artist or just someone who always wanted to learn to sculpt, this is a great class for you. This class can teach you the fundamentals of sculpting in one weekend, help you to get to know your loved one, and look in someone's ears and up their nose to really SEE how the body actually fits together. Students will get a basic understanding of how the face fits together for example how far the eyes are apart from one another, how to stand back to see correct perspective and also just have fun pushing clay around. Valentine's Day is a great time to get to know the ones you love.
When you sign up you get a list of materials you must purchase ahead of time and specific times to attend the weekend workshop. Your instructor will meet you in a virtual classroom along with other students for demonstrations and step by step instruction. By the end of class you will have a representation of your friend or family's face with the knowledge to try it again or just have had a wonderful experience for getting to know the one's you love.
Be prepared to devote a two day weekend to this activity. Class time is 4 hours on Saturday as well as two 2 hour sessions on Sunday. You can keep working outside the class time. There is a break in between for lunch and for rest for your model. Your model can use ear buds to keep them entertained. Quiet voices are needed to help with concentration.
Beginners are welcome. Fun for people of all ages and their loved ones. At least one adult in the pair of artist and model. If you do have children we may ask that your models be quiet during the class time to help with sound and communication.
You must have access to video and be able to upload a picture of your work for corrections and support.
Get ready for a weekend of enjoyment of your own creativity and your experiencing your loved one in a deep and interesting way.
