Sculpting the Human Head

Instructor: Homer Yost

Tuesdays, 10am - 1pm

 

In this class, students will sculpt two human heads, one male and one female. Working from live models, we will translate the forms of the human head into clay. 

 

  • We will first do drawing studies of the skull, using a cast from a real human skull as a reference, looking for the major planes, anatomical landmarks, and profiles of the head.  
  • We will then look for those same major planes of the model’s head, working in clay.  
  • Finally, we will sculpt the facial features of our model, attempting to capture the expressive qualities of the individual forms.

 

Who is this class for: This class is for sculptors and painters alike who want to understand  the 3-dimensionality of the head in space, and it’s profiles from all directions, through the malleable and accessible medium of clay.  It is recommended that students have some life drawing experience before starting to sculpt, but all levels of sculptors are welcome.
