Today was my Open House and Demo Day at my sculpture studio!
It was a great turnout of people and I had lots of fun trying to pack as much info into a few hours as I could!
First up was a short overview of figurative sculpture: from Venus of Willendorf to Damien Hirst!
I also introduced the contemporary realist movement.
The demos began with an explanation of how to begin a portrait sculpture, and how you must scoop out the head at the end to avoid explosion!
We introduced moldmaking, and had a chance to use lifecasting techniques to make plaster replicas of our own fingers!
Lastly, we talked about figurative sculpture, and after a 15 min demo the participants had free reign to jump in and play with the clay!
It was a fun afternoon. Thank you to everyone who came out!
