Pre-registration starts tomorrow. See all the details below.
Fri-Sun, May 8-10
$580 ($30 materials fee)
Renowned sculptor, Tim Bruckner
shares the process of creating a 1/2 life size portrait focusing on character and expression – ideal for illustrators, animators and sculptors alike. This workshop is sponsored in part by the Chavant Clay Company
, providing clay, tools and supplies.
Day #1 will cover building a reliable armature, handling clay, and getting the basic structure of the head established.
Day #2 covers sculpting techniques, tool manipulation, creating form, shaping and imbuing the character with feeling. We will focus on telling your character’s story by sculpting a defined, readable expression.
On Day #3 clay work will be completed. We will discuss molding and casting methods for expanded projects. We’ll photograph our completed sculpture under different lighting conditions and angles and then translate this information to sketches using our maquettes.
Limit: 14 students.
Registration opens November 5th,
Classes will be held at the Arts Umbrealla
