Students can expect one-on-one attention attuned to skill level, personal goals and individual expectations. 2D and 3D artists alike will be taught easy and fun techniques to quickly assess, interpret and create expressive, engaging sculptures. Beginners Welcome!

What I noticed in my studio classes, is that when we left out the model, the work became more personal, more creative and took on more of a narrative feel, so if you have ideas that you’d like help in realizing, let’s do it!

Please contact me  with your project proposal, so we can go over the supplies needed. If you want to learn how to:

*Sculpt an idea you’ve been thinking about 

*Build an armature 

*Work with oil based clay

*Sculpt a pet or loved one

*Paint your sculpture

*Work from a sketch,photograph or painting or another sculpture that you admire

 or all of the above, together we can make it happen! 

This class is not on the Palette roster, please email me me directly to discuss details of your project idea.
