Portrait Sculpture

Students will learn portrait through the study of the major geometries of the head and the anatomy which is influences them. This will be accomplished through quick 3D sketches and longer studies, both half and life size. Students will gain an understanding at how to arrive at a likeness of the model.

Participants must have a valid Fleisher membership. Please note that our tuition-free classes for adults fill very quickly.
