This ONLINE figure sculpture course will be focused on the portrait, working from a life model 3D scan. We will be using a step-by-step classical approach. This course is for those who wish to gain a stronger understanding of the human head & facial features.

Looking closely at proportions, structure and anatomy, we will learn to simplify complex forms into basic and then more refined planes. Each facial feature will be covered in detail and broken down into simple steps. For convenience of working online we will be using oil based clay, and sculpting at a smaller scale than life, about half-life size.

The 3D life model scans will be available to use throughout the course, in and outside of class times.

Suitable for all levels of experience.

Spring 2021: 7 Weeks: Base Tuition: $305 + 3D Model Fee: $15 = Total $320
