Clay Portraiture Workshop - Discover the art of sculpting realistic and expressive portraits

Clay Portraiture Workshop

This hands-on course invites students to create a lifelike sculpture of a live model, focusing on the head, neck, and shoulders while exploring the underlying structures that contribute to the unique features of the human face. Throughout the workshop, participants will work from a live model and study the skull and facial musculature to understand better the forms and contours that give each face its distinct appearance.

The Clay Portraiture Workshop is open to individuals of all experience levels.
