Discovering Sculpting with Mark Hopkins
Thursdays, March 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Each workshop will entail creating sculptures using wax or clay as sculpture mediums. A fast paced study in sculpting and sculpture dynamics. Students will be challenged to sculpt human and animal forms using wax and clay and learn to see the subject matter with a creative, artistic eye. The objectives of the workshops are to become familiar with wax or clay, to learn the tools and techniques of creating the figure or animal, and to sculpt using an appropriate armature. Finished wax sketches can be cast in bronze at the end of workshop.

Mark Hopkins has used wax almost exclusively to produce his extensive works in bronze. He will share his insights and teach techniques he has learned in over 40 years of sculpting. Students will experience the "feel" of using wax as a medium and learn how to portray motion using the fascinating qualities of sculpting wax. Loosen up and become more spontaneous with your creativity. Designed for beginner to intermediate students. To view Mark's work, visit markhopkinssculpture.com.

Philippe Faraut Portrait Sculpting Seminar
Sept 15th, 16th and 17th, 2017 9 am - 4 pm daily Fri-Sun
This seminar includes lectures emphasizing bone structure and discussions on expression and ethnicity. Three days are spent working on sculpting exercises in water-based clay with step-by-step, one to one instruction which will assist students in understanding the intricacies of modeling the human face.

Though participants are welcome to keep any projects worked on during the seminar, the goal is not to work toward the completion of a single finished piece but rather to provide students the opportunity to experiment on numerous small studies.
