  2. Supply List

By George Tkabladze

Students examine the materials and processes for sculpting a portrait, torso, or full figure, using a live model. They learn clay sculpture techniques focused on the use of tools, armatures, anatomy, and proportion, and have the opportunity to explore their individual styles.

The goal is to gain an understanding of the planes of the figure, gestures of the body, and human expression while sculpting the human form.

Tuition includes two bags of clay and model fees. Open to all levels; students receive individual attention tailored to their goals and abilities.

Note: In-person programs are not recorded.
