Sculpting the Human Head

Sculpt a human head using a traditional armature and air-dry clay. Students will sculpt a subject of their choosing from reference photos. The instructor will present examples in separate stages and provide tips and demonstrations. Along with working on the main sculpture, students will work on various exercises to familiarize themselves with sculpting the major facial elements such as eyes, nose, lips, and ears. Each student is responsible for bringing reference photos of their subject (front, left & right side, back, 3/4 views, plus any additional angles or closeups available). The first day will focus on roughing out the head and working on detail exercises. The second day will involve final sculpting and refining all details.
