The universality of the human head is counterbalanced by the small differentials that make each a recognizable, unique individual. Basic anatomical structure and relative proportions are critical parts of every head; distinctive features and expression bring the portrait to life. We will further your understanding of those elements and engage a professional model for the five days. All levels of experience are invited to join this workshop. On the fifth day we will prepare the results for firing in a kiln or for casting.
