This intensive workshop will offer students a 3-day sculpting experience of the human head with Tyson Snow. A sculptor who works with a variety of metal and sculpture mediums in wall-mounted or low relief, with more than 25 years of experience.
Regular demonstrations and individual critiques will guide students through basic and advanced concepts of the portrait, light and form, anatomical and proportional canons to support a visual understanding will be shared.
Particular emphasis will be placed on developing a structured thought process for deconstructing visual information and creating a methodical approach for translating anatomical information accurately in clay. Students will be guided through a comprehensive investigation of the human form and equipped with the tools to compose an accurate and convincing portrait in 3 dimensions intelligently.
Feel free to bring your own tools but sufficient tools, sculpture stands, armatures and clay will be provided for use during the duration of the class. After the three-day workshop, the artist will lovingly prep each student’s work for firing and designate a place or method for returning them.
