Come and Discover "The Speed in Which Form Turns" as you dive into sculpting the Figure, Portrait, Torso or a combination of all three. Most Students begin working half life-size with the figure or venture into life-size portraiture. Future more experienced works consist of life-size Torso to quick sketch sculpture. We work from one model over a 10 week long pose maximizing our time learning to see and translate truths from nature. The Saturday Sculpting Class welcomes sculptors of all levels of experience where you'll encounter students who have never touched clay before to the working professional. Karen's approach is to take each student to their next level on their specific path thru individualized critiques.
