Portrait sculpture is an immensely absorbing and enjoyable discovery with every new sitter. This intermediate course aims to build upon your previous experience [Beginner/ Beginner +] to further how to observe and translate your observation into a clay portrait sculpture from a life model. Setting out a head from a structural point of view with a clear path of constructive method of approach, you will benefit from exploring with a professional sculptor to help build upon your own sculptural progression.
Jessica’s technique uses precise measurement and triangulation with the use of callipers and principles of architecture. Jessica will make a demonstration head during the class to help students throughout the course visualise the technique and put it into practice.
Advanced students will have the opportunity to work at different scales if they feel confident with the technique.
There will be the option to leave your finished sculptures for hollowing and firing for an additional fee.
