Portrait Head in Clay, Sussex Sculpture Studios, Billingshurst, West Sussex

Summer School: Monday 2 July – Friday 6 July 2018, 10am – 4pm, £350 (including materials and firing)

Have you ever wanted to capture someone’s face or expression in a sculpture? Working a portrait in clay from a live model is a really rewarding experience.  On the first day you will start by examining the model and exploring the structure of the head, building a small portrait in clay. This learning will then be used to start the development of a life-size portrait on an armature. You will continue to work on this with the model for the next three and a half days. For those less experienced, the final morning will be spent learning how to hollow-out the portrait in readiness for firing. This course will be taught in a way suitable for all levels of experience – from beginners to the advanced. Course maximum: 8.

Portrait Sculpture Masterclass with Hazel Reeves, The Art Academy, London

Tuesday 28 – Friday 31 August 2018, 10-5pm, £290, Intermediate to Advanced

Portrait sculpture is an immensely absorbing and enjoyable discovery with every new sitter. This course aims to build upon your previous experience [Intermediate/Advanced] to further how to observe and translate your observation into a clay portrait sculpture from a life model. Refresh, renew or find alternative ways of looking through group and individual discussion with your tutor, Hazel Reeves MRBS SWA FRSA. Whether setting out a portrait head from a structural point of view with a clear path of constructive method and/or searching for a more expressive manner of approach, you will benefit from exploring with a professional sculptor to help build upon your own sculptural experience. Hazel will take you through the tried-and-tested method she uses to set up a life-size portrait for a commission. This approach ensures the portrait is structurally-sound before moving-on to working on the detail of features. A likeness will slowly emerge over the four days.
