This hands-on 8-sessions (3 hours each) course will guide you through the entire process of turning simple clay into realistic sculptures. Suitable for kids and adults, beginners and hobby crafters, each session will be uniquely customized to suit your age and skill level based on the course outline.
Through demonstrations and projects, you will learn first a variety of sculpting techniques to create simple objects such as vases and plants. Once you are comfortable using the basic tools and techniques, you will study the intricate features of a human face and learn how to sculpture it from scratch. At last, you will be introduced to the differences and application fields for creating stylized vs. realistic sculpting figures and understand how to apply molding and casting techniques to reproduce your sculpture.
Your instructor Naqqash Kashmiri holds a degree in fine arts and is a teacher and artist for over 10 years. Naqqash will provide step-by-step instruction through the sculpting process and equip you with the skills to work on your own projects anytime again.
