Intro To Sculpture

Oriented towards beginners and "seasoned" beginners, students will learn to sculpt by using a solid block of clay and a wooden paddle. Working from the larger areas to the smaller details, students will create several small animal sculptures before completing a larger piece.

Drying, firing, and finishing techniques will also be discussed.
