Workshop held in sculpture studios in the basement.

Sculpting directly in plaster is an exciting, immediate way to create a permanent artwork. Plaster allows the flexibility of softer modeling materials such as clay, and the capacity for detail and refinement found in harder material such as stone.  Once mastered, plaster is liberating to work with, giving the artist the best qualities of several mediums. This course consists of two parts: an introductory demonstration and a workshop. Armature and tools will be discussed, and workshop students will receive intensive individual instruction. This workshop is open to all levels.
