Figure & Portrait Sculpture

Instructor: Kim Bernadas

An introduction to the modeling of the figure using clay.  The geometry of the figure, its anatomy and their relation to gravity are studied.  Techniques of proportion, dynamics and armature construction are taught.  Composition, proportion, form, volume, weight and surface modeling are emphasized.  The student works toward a more personal expression through the mastery of fundamentals.

This class is great for both the beginning and the experienced art student. Kim uses a classical, hands-on approach and her students work from a live model. No art experience is necessary for this class. You will work in clay, and will be able to take home your very own fired sculpture at the end of the course.
