New Sculpture Workshop with Mason Sullivan

The Portrait Inside and Out June 14-18 (5 days) 10am - 5pm

Look at yourself in a mirror. Just under the surface of the skin lies the skull. Many of the unique and distinctive features you observe are created by its form. The arrangement of the muscles of the face both reveal and hide the form of the skull beneath, and the action of these muscles can exhibit the full range of human emotion.

Recognizing skeletal features in the living model, and the understanding of the muscular action that creates emotional expression is an immense help to artists of all kinds who choose the portrait as their subject.

The workshop will begin with an introduction to the anatomy of the head. Both skeletal and muscular features will be reviewed. Students will have the opportunity to copy a skull in clay. During the final days we will apply our studies to sculpting from a living model. more info & how to sign up
