Modeled clay sculpture course

Home page / Modeled clay sculpture course
The Modeled Clay Sculpture Course will be held at the Studio Atelier la Goccia (next to the Arco Arte school). The course is intended both for beginners and for more experienced sculptors and does not necessarily require knowledge on the matter. During the course the correct use of tools, supports, material and modeling techniques will be shown step by step, so that each student can create his/her own sculptural work. The student, according to his/her level of experience and desire, may model a sculpture in its entirety, or a clay bas-relief.
A kiln for terracotta is available at the Atelier la Goccia.
