Students will need to bring:

Spackling spatula

Large wooden cooking spatula

Plastic to cover their sculpture

Spray bottle to wet their sculpture

Other tool recommendations (not required, but helpful) will be provided to students who sign up.

The goal is to create a finished clay portrait and to learn observation and anatomy in the traditional figurative methods of the great masters. If students wish to preserve their creation, they can request learning materials for making a plaster waste-mold, or they can send their creation to one of the nearby foundries to have it cast in another material.

Once there are 6 students signed up, confirmation details will be sent.
