---------------------------------------------------------------------
INTRODUCTION TO SCULPTING THE FACE
---------------------------------------------------------------------

* Friday, May 31: 7:00 – 8:00 pm Sculpture Demonstration
* Saturday, June 1: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm (one hour lunch break)
* Sunday, June 2: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm (one hour lunch break)



This introductory class focuses on facial features. You will model in clay a 4-5 inch facial feature: an eye, nose, mouth and ear.
All levels - beginners welcome

---------------------------------------------------------------------
CLASS FORMAT
---------------------------------------------------------------------
The instructor will demonstrate the sculpting technique. You will then copy an existing sculpture. You will develop eye training by observing the three-dimensional forms. Emphasis is on developing an understanding of sculpture language, form and plane. You will familiarize yourself with working in clay and using sculpture tools.


---------------------------------------------------------------------
CLASS CONTENT
---------------------------------------------------------------------
This class does not cover detailed anatomical exploration or naming of musculature. The emphasis is on creating a strong sculptural shape by observing the "landmarks" of the face and understanding the structural relationship between the high and low points of the surface, where the plane changes direction and the angle of the planes.See examples of student work at www.vancouversculpture.com.

Students work in a water-based ceramic clay that will be fired in a kiln. As it takes time for the sculptures to dry properly before firing, you will need to come back a few weeks after the class ends to pick up your fired sculptures.
