Requirements for Zoom

You will need a computer, laptop, tablet or phone that has a camera installed or attached as a webcam. We recommend that you use your largest screen rather than your telephone if possible.

Zoom is free for you to use but it will save time if you download the Zoom app to your device before the class begins. If you are in the USA, you can do so here:  Zoom Link

For other countries, do a Zoom search for your country.

INVITATION: Once you have signed up for the class you will be sent helpful tips for working with Zoom as well as a link to the Zoom class.

Class Description:  This class will cover the basics of working with polymer clay to create 3-dimensional faces. The demonstrated faces will be 3 to 4 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.)

Sculpting is about training your eyes to see, your heart to feel and your hands to move the tools.
