For this session of the Sculpture Gesture Sketch Workshop there will be one day with a female model and one day with a male model

On the first day we will go over armature construction, including how to acquire the necessary materials. Participants will construct an armature to be used in the afternoon session. This will be followed by a full demonstration of a gesture sketch in clay by Erik, working with a live model. In the afternoon students will have the opportunity to sculpt the same pose as the demonstration.

On the second day students will utilize both sessions to sculpt a different pose with a new model, while recieving guidance and instruction from Erik. 

Students are free to keep any and all work they complete at the workshop. 

Workshop is limited to 8 participants.
