Sculpting Emotion- a five-week virtual workshop with Tip Toland

5 Tuesday evenings, 6-8pm, 5/18, 5/25, 6/1, 6/8, 6/15

Adding emotional content to figurative sculpture requires some understanding of anatomy and the facial muscles that help create expressions.  This five-week (once-a-week) virtual workshop will introduce students to the necessary tools and processes to create an emotive self-portrait.  Using pipe armatures, students will build a solid life-sized bust that will be modeled, hollowed, and put back together.  Participants will be given access to demonstration videos, handout materials and a once-a-week 2 hour Zoom meeting.  Students will need to work outside of the meeting time to prepare for subsequent sessions.   Seward Park Clay Studio can provide the clay for local participants or suggest clay bodies to folks who are not close by.  While firing is not included in the price of this workshop, it can be arranged through SPCS.
