Focused on rendering the human face and its varied expressions, this four-day workshop strengthens your observational skills, introduces sculpting and hollowing techniques, and explores surface development through an anatomical approach.

Working from photo references and direct observation of your own face, solid sculpt four small heads that emphasize emotion and expression. Demonstrations, group discussions, and plenty of hands-on practice address the anatomy of the head, the psychological and emotional use of color, and hollowing techniques. Use engobes, underglazes, and washes to experiment with surface. Open to all levels.
