Modeling a head/portrait in clay

Weekly course full day

Target Audience:

Beginners and advanced


An introduction to the proportions and anatomy of the head is at the beginning of this course. After creating an armature, clay is used to build up the head. This can be done either solidly or in hollow construction (so that the head can be fired afterwards). The course instructor will be available to assist you in all steps of the process and provide tips on how to give your sculpted head a distinctive character.

Important information:

The format of the head can be freely chosen. The required amount of clay or plasticine you can bring from home or purchase from us.
