Intro To Sculpture With Mac McCusker
Oriented towards beginners and "seasoned" beginners, students will
learn to sculpt by using a solid block of clay and a wooden paddle.
Working from the larger areas to the smaller details, students will
create several small animal sculptures before completing a larger piece.
Sculptures will then be cut apart into multiple pieces, hollowed, and
reassembled. Students will also learn how to use balance and dynamic
poses when creating their sculptures. Drying, firing, and finishing
techniques will also be discussed.
Date: Tuesdays, July 12- August 9
Level: Beginner And All Skill Levels Welcome Tuition: $185 + $30 Lab Fee
Location: Odyssey ClayWorks
