Jonathan Shahn
Sculpture: Modeling in Clay

Jonathan Shahn has been making sculpture, drawings and prints of the human figure since the early 1960s. He has exhibited his work frequently, both in the United States and in Europe. His most recent one-man shows include an exhibition at Lori Bookstein Gallery (New York, 2010), and Heads in Wood and Plaster at Grounds for Sculpture (Hamilton, New Jersey, April 18–September 22, 2013).

Mr. Shahn has taught at the Tyler School in Rome, Boston University, and the Maryland Institute, among others.

“I believe the hardest part of learning to make sculpture is learning how to look, trying to understand what is seen, and how these perceptions are influenced by what we know (or think we know) and by our memory. This perception and knowledge and memory of the observed world, and of the art of the past and present, all come together in the making of each sculpture.”

This class works from the clothed and nude model, with poses generally lasting three weeks.
