Online Workshop – Design with Clay –

Online Workshop overview.

I’ am offering to teach an online workshop on Sculpting, Design with Clay. The class is open to all levels. In this class I will show the student my personal approach, which will be the same I used in all the years during my work as a sculptor for the Entertainment Industry. We will go over some of the maquettes I created for my work, as well some of my personal sculptures. While the approach is the same, the goal is a different one. I am asking to submit a portfolio. Just a few images of your work, so that I will be able to put together groups with an even level of experience for each class. Each group will consist of max 5 to 8 people. This allows me to give great attention and the appropriate space to each individual student.
