By George Tkabladze

Develop a basic understanding of the principles and techniques of sculpture through hands-on studio work and demonstrations. Guided instruction on differing methods helps students to develop skills in multiple sculpting techniques and usage of tools while they gain a better understanding of proportion, composition, and problem solving.

Students work in clay to create head and face portraits from plaster casts or a live model and they may create representational or abstract works. Tuition includes two bags of clay and model fees. Both beginning students with no sculpting experience and more experienced students are welcome.

A supply list may be downloaded from this page no later than 2 weeks prior to the first session.

Instructor: George Tkabladze

6 sessions; 3 hours each
