Figurative Clay Sculpture Workshop

Figurative Clay Sculpture Workshop

Learn how to create figurative clay sculptures through various clay hand-building and sculpture techniques to gain an understanding of anatomy and movement. Participants will create realistic figures that can be abstracted and enhanced by adding whimsy style and drama to their figures. This workshop encourages participants to add their own style and imagination to their sculptures. All levels from beginner to advanced are invited. Sculptures are fired and completed with Patina finishes.
