Sculpture II: Human Portraits

Instructor: Adrian Golban
Wednesdays 6:30-9:30pm
10 weeks: April 17 to June 19
Room 117 Williams Building
$360 supplies extra
Prerequisite: Sculpture I

Building on what they learnt in Sculpture I, students will work in plasticine and review the skull measurements and practice replicating them. Grounded in our knowledge of the face elements and skull, we will then work to create a work based on the human head including all the elements: skull, muscles, skin, and hair. We will continue to develop skills in observing, measuring, and working from the larger shapes to the details. Students will have the opportunity if they wish to follow this class up by registering for a weekend workshop to learn how to use their plasticine sculptures to create a silicone mold.


Students can work in plasticine or clay. Plasticine will not dry out, doesn't need to be fired, and can be used to make a mold. Clay tends to dry out, it will need to be fired which sometimes can lead to cracking, but it is more affordable. 

If you have any questions, please contact us and Adrian will be happy to advise.
