Class Description:  This class will cover the basics of working with polymer clay to create 3-dimensional faces. The demonstrated pieces will be 4 to 6 inches tall as it is easier to learn sculpting techniques when working with larger sizes.


Maureen will do multiple demonstrations of her step by step process for creating her signature characters. There will also be technique handouts for your reference as you go about building your skills.


The ability to sculpt faces is a skill
 that develops in layers, with each
face that you make a step in that learning process.

If you have already sculpted faces or have drawn, painted or photographed them you may already have embedded in your thinking processes the basic proportions and shapes of an average face. All of this helps.

BUT, if you are a beginner, be bold! Every face that you create will speak back to you with a distinctive voice. (At least that's what Maureen says.)

If you are an experienced sculptor, you may know most of the basics, but every tip gained is a bonus for you. Come prepared to ask questions regarding some of the sculpting problems that you may be having.
