In this class, students will use clay and an armature to solid build a head and shoulders self-portrait (or a portrait of whoever they choose). This project will be less than life sized. They will learn how to sculpt different features of the face, different expressions, as well as hair and clothing if needed. After sculpting, the students will learn how to hollow out their sculptures for firing. ​This workshop is limited to participants 18+. There is a minimum of 4 participants and a maximum of 8. If the minimum is not met, participants will be refunded.  This workshop will be held on February 19 and 20, 2022 from 9 AM-12 PM both days.
