Make a Portrait Sculpture with Clay


2 Days, 10am to 5pm, with a break for lunch
All Materials, Tools, Tea, Coffee And Biscuits Are Provided. Mould And Cast Not Included.
All Levels
Portrait sculpture is a wonderfully absorbing and intense experience. You will focus on translating your vision into the clay. Using a process-based technique you will learn to take measurements from a model and begin to construct a 3-dimensional head out of clay.
Through controlled observation, you will explore elements of the human anatomy to gain a deeper understanding of the underlying construction of the human form. You will consider both aesthetic and systematic approaches to modelling and manipulating with clay as you strengthen your skills in accuracy and proportion.
At the end of the course, you will have created your own carefully observed and lifelike portrait sculpture from clay. You will have developed your anatomical knowledge and gained confidence and in applying your observational skills to the processes of portrait sculpture.
This experience is great for anyone wishing to improve their observational skills, whether you are working professionally in a related field; or, looking to enhance your portfolio to pursue studies or a career within sculpture, special effects or the performing arts.
The class is open to all levels as Livia will dedicate time to each student in this small group.
Tools, tea-coffee and biscuits are provided just bring yourself!
We will have an hour lunch, you can go to the exciting Brixton market, or bring a pack lunch!
The final product will be a wet clay sculpture. You can take beautiful pictures of your work but it will be impossible to take the clay home with you as it is not a finished piece but just the first stage of a sculpture.
As the time is limited and it is important to concentrate on learning the process technique of sculpting. Should you wish to have the piece moulded and cast I can refer you to a professional who will do it for you. Please ask in advance if you are interested.
