The Portrait in Plaster

  • Brookgreen Gardens 1931 BROOKGREEN DRIVE MURRELLS INLET, SC 29576 (map)


In this five-day workshop at beautiful and historic Brookgreen Gardens, students will work from a model, creating a portrait at 3/4 scale in water-based clay. During the second half of the class, they will cast the portrait and create an original plaster cast of their work. We’ll discuss and practice plaster finishing techniques, as well as some basic treatments to add color to the surface and seal the plaster. Teaching methods will include demonstrations, discussions, and individual feedback. The finished piece can easily be shipped home or transported in a vehicle as necessary.
