Working from live model, participants will learn to create a likeness of the human head. Learning the about the positions, proportions and relationships between each part of the head/face. Building on a wooden armature on the first day participants will create the rough size/shape of the head, on the second day each element will be refined and, working from observation, a likeness will be attempted.
Clay life/head modelling is a central part of sculptural practice, as life drawing is for a figurative painter. It is the best way for any artist to gain an understanding the shapes and subtleties of the human.
