Portrait Modeling: 3 Day workshop at Coppini Academy of Fine Arts in San Antonio, TX


  • Coppini Academy of Fine Arts 115 Melrose Place San Antonio, TX, 78212 United States (map)

I’m pleased to be offering a 3-day portrait sculpture intensive at the historic Coppini Academy of Fine Arts in San Antonio, Texas. Portrait modeling is an exercise in active observation. I’ll break down my methods and priorities when studying and describing the complex forms of the human head in 3 dimensions. Students will model a life-size portrait in water-based clay on a wooden armature. The resulting piece may be cast or fired outside of class if students have access to those processes ( We will not be including casting or firing in the workshop).
