We are aware of missing faculty photos in the directory and catalog and will be updating them shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Spring 2019 quarter

Taught by

In this class students will sharpen their observation skills by rendering the human form using a live model. Topics discussed will include the ethics and implications of using the human form in art. Skills covered include construction of armatures, sculpting around an armature with solid clay, hollowing and reconstruction, and techniques for sculpting problematic areas like heads, hands, and feet. A variety of surface options will also be covered including fired and room temperature glaze.
