Service Description

Animal Sculpture Class with Local Sculptor Eduardo Gomez Rojas This sculpture class taught by Eduardo is a step-by-step demonstration of the techniques involved in sculpting an animal in clay.  Your choice of animal! Sorry we can’t bring in the model. You will have to work from your own pictures. The class covers basic anatomy of the animal and its anatomical proportions. Due to the physical limitations of clay, the pose of the animal will have to be such that an armature is not required. There is also the possibility of using a bas relief format for a standing animal if the student is comfortable with drawing techniques to be able to show foreshortening on a 2D plane. Students learn how to use the shape and the planes to obtain a general likeness and study and different ways of modeling the structure of the animal. Basic aesthetic issues involved in designing a sculpture is covered as well as how to prepare it for firing or molding along with different mounting options. Surface finishing techniques are covered in an additional class after the piece has been bisque fired. The course includes one bisque firing. Students purchase clay from the studio. This class is for all levels and meets 4 times. Open Studio will be discussed and offered should students need more time to complete their work. Cancellation policy: Cancellations receive a 50% refund or postponement to a later class, if cancelled 48 hours prior to the beginning of the first class. This class must have a minimum of 6 students to run. Cancellations incur a $10 credit card processing fee. If the studio cancels, there is no fee.
