I was going to send out a notice about the free figurative clay workshop that I am leading at the Creative Arts Center, but it has already filled up. YEAH! Thank god. My nerves hate spending time in limbo. Give me the stress of deadlines, due dates and real problems any day. Worrying about things like missing a airplane flight or if an art class is going to make or not, drives me crazy!
Anyway, if sculpting from the figure sounds interesting to you, the Spring classes at CAC start on March 7th. Still plenty of time to register. I'll be teaching The Expressive Figure in Clay on Thursday nights and possibly Thursday mornings, too.
Here's the class description:
The Expressive Figure In Clay During this live model sculpting class, students will explore expressive ways of capturing the figure in clay. The basics of human proportion, sculptural form and the physicality of clay will be highlighted, but the focus on the class will be creating a personal artistic voice. We will explore slow and rapid ways of describing the figure in clay, from drawing on slabs to bas relief to free standing sculptures. This class is open to all skill levels. First day of class, bring any sort of tools or utensils that can manipulate or poke clay.
Thursdays, March 10- April 12th 6:30 -9:30 pm And possibly Thursday mornings 9:30am- 12:30pm
