Sculpture Explorations: Portraits
In this course students will work with clay as they study the human form. Closely guided by instruction, and working with a life model, students will develop skills of observation and proportion as they work toward a portrait in clay. In addition to skill development, contemporary and historical approaches to portraiture will be discussed. Students will have the opportunity to develop traditional sculpture techniques within the classroom environment, while being encouraged to find their personal artistic voice.
This course is suitable for students with some sculpture experience. The class includes all required materials. Students may choose to purchase supplementary materials.
This course meets in the AGO's Anne Tanenbaum Gallery School. Participants must be 18 or older. Space is limited.
