Evocative Animal Heads

All Levels             2 days

Explore the narrative, emotional and conceptual potential of the animal head in clay. Drawing inspiration from personal experience, archetypes, and observations in the natural and manufactured world, you will create 8" to 16" animal head sculptures. Lindsay will share her building methods, including solid building with armatures, slab building and anatomical figure sculpting techniques. Image presentations of historic and contemporary examples will provide context and inspiration. Individual guidance will help you create unique sculptures that are personally relevant. Workshop includes discussion of mixed-media surface treatments and mounting strategies.  Maximum 9.
