The Dynamic Portrait in Sculpture

How to Sculpt a Lifelike Portrait

The goal of this 3-Day Workshop is to combine the knowledge of anatomy with creative expression to create a life-like portrait. With an with emphasis on the human female portrait, Regina will present specific techniques for creating a likeness by exploring the details of the structure of the head and facial features. With her 25 years experience teaching anatomy of the figure, Regina simplifies the complex forms of the head and face while demonstrating basic techniques of clay modeling and the use of various sculpture tools. If you have little or no experience working with clay or the figure, you will be amazed at how much you will achieve. Intermediate sculptors will expand their abilities and skills with specific techniques of getting a likeness and bringing life to the sculpture. The study will be from photos of a model. You may use the images provided or you may select your own subject and bring your own photos. Regina will lecture on the first day as to what images work best for sculpture.
