“Sculpting the Portrait” consists of two parts: a demonstration and a five-day intensive workshop. The basics of sculpted portraiture, such as armature and tools, will be addressed, in addition to the artistic nuances of capturing the essence of a specific person. During the demo, the instructor will sculpt a portrait from a live model and focus on the challenges an artist may encounter when trying to capture a likeness. The instructor will guide students as they sculpt their own portraits of the model. This course is open to all levels of experience.
