This is a 1-day class to sculpt a whimsical bird with a human face. You will learn about clay sculpting, mold/texture plates use, building a base form and working on capturing an expression.
If you are totally new to clay, that is fine, this clay is wonderful to work with. We are going to be using a face mask that I have sculpted for you and turn that into a head, then attach to a bird body you have made and patterned. It is a layered approach right the through to the painting and lots of fun to do.
You will end up with your own unique Quirky Bird and skills to develop your own ideas later.
