Weekly Classes at Jhess Studios: Fall Session

Registration is now open for our Fall session of weekly classes at JHess Studios in downtown San Francisco.

In this session, I'll be offering Portrait Modeling on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-9:30 pm. Students work from life in small groups, creating a life size portrait study. The armature and clay are included in the tuition, so that students may take home the piece to fire or cast it independently. 

On Saturday afternoons, I'll be offering our Figure Ecorche sculpture class, which will last for 3 full sessions, running through the end of March. We offer Figure Ecorche every other academic year. In this class, students will sculpt a skeleton in anatomical position and then apply muscles and other soft tissue structures individually to arrive at the human form. The armature and clay are included in the tuition. 

UPDATES:

BOTH CLASSES are FULL as of 7/10. Please email me to be on the waiting list.
