This class will give the novice the skills to create a sculpture, and will provide help to those looking to refresh skills or to work through a "problem" with a piece. The class size is small, so each person can work at their own pace with lots of individual help. You'll learn both ancient and modern reductive sculpting techniques with hand carving tools and power tools. You will begin carving the 1st day. Stone will be available for purchase the first day of class. Please note this class meets every other weekend for 8 sessions. Prerequisite : None

Instructor: Mark Walker

Learn the ancient 'lost wax' casting process. First, you'll learn basic moldmaking to duplicate a design in wax. This wax copy is then 'invested' in a plaster and sand mixture. Then the wax will be burned out of the plaster, leaving a void to be filled with bronze. Finally, finish your bronze and color it through 'chasing' and 'patination' techniques. All materials except the cost of bronze are included in supply fee. Prerequisite: None Supply Fee $115
