Taught by Carolyn Wirth - beginners and more experienced artists are all welcome in this class on modeling a portrait head in clay. We will work in the traditional methods employed by Daniel Chester French, which classical sculptors use to this day. Materials, including tools and armatures, will be covered. We will begin with basic anatomy and progress to individual technique in a two-day intensive workshop. Please bring a sketchbook and your favorite drawing pencils, as we will draw inspiration from the many beautiful portraits at Chesterwood.
