Sculpture Classes: Create Masks and Characters in Sculpture

Beginner and Intermediate art classes for individuals and small groups

Simple techniques for quick results.

Our lives are stories filled with characters whose presence influences our actions. Creating 3-dimensional forms of these archetypes brings them into our active consciousness.

These interactive sessions guide you through concept and creation of your own character: an archetype, a pet, an angel, or imaginary form. Learn basic techniques, then create form, define gesture, and enhance the personality of your muse. This is a versatile and forgiving process using wire, dowels, cardboard, tape, layered paper and fabric to produce an amazingly rigid sculpture.

FEE: $45 per session for a 2-hour session. Basic materials provided
