July 22 - 26
In this hands-on workshop, participants will create unique, figurative sculptures illustrating narratives drawn from childhood tales, comic books, movies or personal experience. Using sculpture clay, Kensuke will demonstrate multiple hand-building techniques for constructing heads - further discussions will explore glazing and firing; anatomy; proportion; posture and gesture; and using all of these to create expressive, animated figures. Participants will also learn about enhancing surfaces by texturing and detailing, for greater personalization. Students will make small, low-fire pieces for glaze and firing experimentation, and for further exploration after the workshop.
Space is limited to 10 students.
