Sculpting Animals In Clay
4 Week Class at Mudpie Clay Center with Courtney Cullen

The class will focus on traditional sculpture techniques in terracota to explore animal forms. We will go through the process of creating a sculpture from beginning to end: starting with reference images to blocking out general shapes and working towards final detail. Students will have the freedom to choose the animal(s) they want to create. At the end of the class, students will be able to take home their own fired sculpture!
