Your PULSE OF CLAY session will begin in the artist’s working studio with a 3-hour head modeling demonstration from life by the sculptor; followed by hands-on learning of modeling techniques, sculptural expression, structure, composition, and movement. The workshop, designed for beginning/advanced students — including art appreciators who wish to deepen their understanding and sensitivity — will give you a reliable compass for continuing an independent and rewarding sculptural journey. You will be provided with a modeling stand, armature, clay and a live model. You may purchase the clay and take your work home or arrange to have it cast in bronze. On Saturday you may wish to attend a public bronze pouring at nearby Shidoni Foundry. Enjoy the comradeship of your fellow explorers, stimulating study, anecdotes of local Southwest history, a deicious graduation lunch…and a tangible record of your achievement– not to mention the rich cultural diversity and multiple attractions of Santa Fe — the most concentrated art capital in the world.
We hope you will join in sharing with us your passion, excitement, and input.
Viva Sculpture! Viva Santa Fe!
