I have some great classes and workshops coming up this Winter. All of them are on beautiful Cape Cod.
Long Pose Workshop
Saturday/Sunday 1&2 December, 10am – 4 pm, Cotuit Center for the Arts
This is a new regular monthly workshop designed (and priced) for artists who want to work with a long pose. Aimed at those with art experience, you’ll be able to work with a live model for a whole weekend in the medium of your choice (painters and sketchers welcome in addition to sculptors). I’ll be available to provide guidance and critique on figure sculpting, general anatomy and proportions, but you’ll be able to work at your own pace with the pose.
Portrait Sculpture Winter 2019
Fridays, Jan 11-Mar 22, 9am-12pm (no 22 Feb), Cotuit Center for the Arts
This class is for beginner and intermediate sculptors. Learn how to create realistic and beautiful portrait sculptures in clay. Initially you’ll learn the ‘golden rules’ for making a clay face look like a real face before moving on to tackle a live model. Previous class attendees will be welcomed back.
Hand Building in Clay 101
Mondays, Jan 28-Mar 11, 6-9 pm (no 18 Feb), Cotuit Center for the Arts
Join me as we learn how to make all sorts of clay objects using our hands and a washing wringer (known as a slab roller in the trade). This is a great opportunity for students to learn to make a variety of beautiful pieces in clay such as bags, shoes, clothing, faces and even figures in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

Sculpting the Torso 3-Day Workshop
Fri-Sun, Mar 15-17, Fri 4-8pm, Sat & Sun 10am – 4pm, Cotuit Center for the Arts
If you’ve ever wanted to make realistic people in clay, this three-day workshop is your gateway to figure sculpting! Designed for the beginner and those with only limited experience in clay, this workshop will take you through the basics of sculpting a torso in the course of a weekend. You’ll learn how to understand the relationship between the pelvis and the rib-cage and then go on to create a sculpture by copying a reference piece.
