For this session of the Sculpture Portrait Workshop there will be one model both days. 

On the first day we will go over Durant’s methods for armature construction, including how to acquire the necessary materials. Participants will then construct an armature to be used for their sculpture, and be guided through the massing out of the head with instruction and demonstration from Erik.

On the second day participants will be introduced to Durant’s methods for sculpting the four major features: eyes, ears, nose and mouth. The remainder of the day will be for working on the portrait sculptures while observing the live model.

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

Workshop is limited to 8 participants.
