Life Sculpting


Learn to make a portrait or full pose life model through sculpture!

Unlike life drawing or painting, this workshop is an opportunity to get creative with 3D modelling through multi-media including plaster bandage, modelling wax, clay and paper.

You will have the opportunity to learn skills in sculpting with specific tools as well as by hand, developing structure and shape based on observation, as well as experimenting with techniques and styles from art historical examples.

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to take away your completed sculpture to enjoy at home.

The cost of this workshop includes all materials.
