5 Day Workshops

 

Introduction to Portrait Sculpture 
Intense tutored sessions over 5 full days. It is ideal for beginners and those wanting to learn in detail, the anatomy and proportions of the face. It is an intense tutored course and much is to be gained from this. Aim is to focus on individual parts of the face or a particular sculptural process- discussing anatomy and proportions as well as learning sculpting techniques through observation. This 3 dimensional crafting of the face gives a deep understanding of the proportions of the human portrait and in-turn these skills help with expressing accurate representations in drawing and painting as well as sculpture. The first 5 sessions you will be sculpting parts of the face, in clay from plaster casts designed by Billie, 1 day making a mini-portrait from your own photos, and final day creating a bas relief portrait. This course is also a must before venturing onto the Life-size Portrait Sculpture course.
