This workshop is not project based, but rather a technique and skill enhancing workshop. In this four-day workshop, I will explain facial anatomy and mapping, then take you through sculpting each part of the face.

I will offer different treatment options, for example you will learn how to create wide open young adult eyes to creating an aged and hooded eyelid, a closed pouting mouth to an open laugh with teeth. You will learn my tips, tricks and techniques for each part of the face and she will show you how to put it all together for a more realistic sculpture.

I am excited to bring this class to you through the Art Connection Summit!
