Charlotte Sculpting


Sculpture classes are for both beginners and experienced artists. In this session, the focus is on the human form. However, students are welcome to create what they would like. Areas of emphasis include how to perceive the human figure and how to create expressions. Time will be spent on emphasizing bringing life to the sculpture through gesture, movement, mood and expression in addition to important art history lessons. The class will work with water-based clay. Supplies will be discussed on the first day of class. Just bring an apron if you don’t want to get messy!
