How do you make a well-proportioned and realistic figure in clay?  How do you avoid cartoonish features?  The great news is that it’s easy once someone has shown you the ‘tricks’.  Join sculpting instructor Neil Grant on this 10-week introduction to sculpting the figure.  Working at an easy pace with a focus on enjoyment and hands-on creating, you’ll learn about critical factors such as proportion and the relationship between the pelvis and ribcage that will automatically elevate your future creations.  During the class, you’ll create a biomechanical model, a realistic torso and several maquettes (clay sketches).   This class is also suitable for 2D artists who want to improve their understanding of the mechanics of the figure.

Refunds will not be given within one week of the start of a class.  Classes are not pro-rated, and there are no make-ups for missed classes.  A $25 processing fee is withheld from all refunds.

Instructor Bio

Neil Grant is an English sculptor who lives and works on Cape Cod.  He specializes in using classical sculpting techniques to produce “fine art through a different lens”.  Neil likes to inject both humor and social commentary into his art, as well as to wander off the path into the unusual, but always works off a solid foundation of technical competence.  He has studied under nationally recognized sculptors such as Philippe Faraut and Brian Booth Craig, and regularly produces commission pieces for private collections.  He is a firm believer that anyone can sculpt if they are led astray enough.
