Sculpture in Clay Class
Suzanne Peiffer will instruct a course in Sculpture beginning Wednesday, May 2. Students will explore personal and cultural history as we make figurative clay sculpture. The instructor will cover basic construction techniques using modified slabs, coils, and simple armatures. Special attention will go to head and facial modeling techniques, and how surface and form combine to create visual meaning. The class will work with a mid-range stoneward. Students may bring reference material such as photos, or images from magazines and books.
This class is perfect for beginning or continuing students.
This class will meet for five weeks May 2, 9, 16, 30 and June 6, on Wednesdays from 9am to Noon.
