Portrait Sculpture Studio: Busts


with Neil Grant       ADULTS
10 classes, Wednesdays, Apr 12-Jun 14
Next session starts in June! 

Ideal for Beginner and Intermediate sculptors

The Wall Street Journal reports that there is now, "A Boom in Busts," and that they are "back in vogue after decades in the wings." If you’d like to learn how to make realistic busts of studio models, loved ones, celebrities, historical figures and even figments of your imagination, then this is the course for you. 

Taught in easy to follow steps by sculptor, Neil Grant, you’ll learn the secrets of making portrait sculpture. Each session provides the opportunity to work on a bust in a studio environment from a live model. Neil will be available to tutor both beginner and intermediate students as they use the model and other reference materials to learn sculpting techniques and produce work. Two different live models will be used over successive five week periods to allow students to create finished pieces of work that can be fired in the Center’s kiln. Stands are provided and tools are available (students are welcome to bring their own if they have them).
