Small Classes | Individual Instruction | Challenging Projects

Classes are open to all levels of experience – from beginner to professional. Everyone is welcome – no previous experience in sculpture is necessary. Classes are structured in the traditional atelier method, where students of all levels work together at their own pace and receive individualized instruction in a supportive atmosphere. Classes are small so you will receive extensive feedback and hands-on instruction. This is an unequalled opportunity to study with an exceptional figurative sculptor.

  • Develop a trained eye by sculpting through observation
  • Learn how to accurately translate complex shapes
  • Locate high and low points on a sculptural form
  • Benefit from a small class size and attentive instruction

Introduction to Figurative Sculpture

Continuing Studies in Sculpture

$300 per month (4 classes) includes materials
Must have completed the Introduction to Figurative Sculpture course

As sculpture classes are given atelier style, with each student working at their own pace, students who have completed the Introduction to Figurative Sculpture course may continue their studies with a variety of projects. Typically students go on to sculpt the following pieces, advancing when they are ready:

  • Small heads (4-5 inches high) copied from a studio sculpture, or sculpted from your own sketches/ideas
  • Torso (about 8 inches high) copied from a sculpture in the studio
  • Skull (2/3 life size) copied from a sculpture in the studio
  • Portrait sculpture (2/3 life size head) copied from a sculpture in the studio
  • Portrait sculpture (2/3 life size head) self portrait or sculpted from your own sketches
  • Small bust (2/3 life size or life size head) copied from a sculpture in the studio
  • Old boot
  • Draped cloth
  • Individual projects

The emphasis is on copying sculptures at the beginning of the training. Copying is an important part of developing observational skills. As students progress, they begin to work on their own projects under guidance of the instructor.

Sculpture & Drawing Classes

As strong drawing skills will aid your development as a sculptor, students are encouraged to keep a sketchbook to record their ideas in. Students may also have drawing classes incorporated into their weekly sculpture session. Part of the session will be spent on drawing and the remaining time on sculpture. Weekly drawing assignments will be given.

Contact us to reserve your spot. Payment information will be sent to you prior to the class start.


Private Instruction

Private classes can be arranged for yourself or a small group. Private classes are ideal if you have a specific project in mind that you would like to receive guidance on from an experienced sculptor.

  • 2-hour minimum first session: $100/hour

Contact us to arrange for private instruction. Payment information will be sent to you prior to the class start.
