Portrait Sculpture Intensive Workshop

Portrait Sculpture Intensive Workshop | August 13 - August 17

Students will have the opportunity to sculpt a life-like portrait in clay, working directly from the model. This workshop is designed for all levels of ability. Instructor Rick Casali's innovative teaching style embraces the French concept of "secret figure" - a knowledge/concept approach to understanding the portrait. This unique five-day workshop will consist of daily sculpture demos by Casali covering proportion, pose, geometric planes along with the anatomy of the eyes, nose, mouth, ears and the forms of the hair. Thorough measurements of each model will be recorded prior to class as a reference. Students will have their choice of a male or female model (model fee TBA). Recommended for portrait painters, sculptors, illustrators, and computer animators. Materials List.
