Introduction to Sculpting a Bas Relief Portrait in Profile ( Virtual Zoom Class) Two Part Series: September 11, September 18, 1:00 – 4:00 pm each session $80 for series
Over two classes, students will learn how to create a relief sculpture.
Students will supply of the person they would like to sculpt (taken in profile. Reference image and instructions for photographing the reference will be provided), and in this class we will use the photo to sculpt a Bas Relief.
We will discuss how to effectively compress 3-dimensional depth to create convincing space within the relief. We will discuss form hierarchy, why some forms will be more pronounced in relief, and others less so.
Students will learn basic principles of perspective in addition to clay modeling and finishing techniques.
The class will be held via Zoom, and participants will need a smartphone, tablet, or computer with camera to participate.
