Animal Portrait Sculpture & Mold Making

Learn to efficiently create and reproduce expressive ceramic animal portrait sculptures with Wesley Wright. Day one will begin with an informative overview of the class and Wright’s techniques. The first 3 days will focus on building an animal bust with special focus on the head, rendering subtleties of eyes, flesh, musculature, and of course, fur! Day 4 will cover multiple-part plaster mold-making. On day 5 students will experiment with their molds creating a final piece to take home along with their mold.

PLEASE NOTE: Work made in this class will not be fired at MISSA.
