Portrait sculpture is an immensely absorbing and enjoyable discovery with every new sitter. This 2-day course aims to build upon your previous experience (Intermediate/Advanced) to further how to observe and translate your observation through drawing and modelling into a clay portrait sculpture from a life model. Refresh, renew or find alternative ways of looking through group and individual discussion with your tutor, Suzie Zamit, a member of The Society of Portrait Sculptors. Whether setting out a head from a structural point of view with a clear path of constructive method and/or searching for a more expressive manner of approach you will benefit from exploring with a professional sculptor to help build upon your own sculptural expression.
Focus is on understanding measurement, anatomy, architecture, form, high-points and contours, texture and clay application as well as character and expression of the model in the sculpture.
